Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Primarily, the animal shelter is the facility that accepts stray, ill, injured and unwanted domestic animals both from the general public and the animal control agencies of the three counties it serves. These animals are provided with a safe, humane haven until they are reclaimed by their owners, adopted out to their new owners, rescued by a humane organization, or are euthanized.
MONDAY thru FRIDAY: 12pm to 5pm
SATURDAY: 10am to 3pm
If you are interested in adding a new pet to your household please consider adopting one from the Tri-County Animal Shelter. It is a really easy process. You simply pick out an animal that you want, fill out an application, complete an adoption contract and pick out a veterinarian from the list of those participating in our adoption program. The animal shelter and it's staff take care of the rest. They make the surgery appointment for your new pet and take it to the veterinarian on the day of the appointment. While at the veterinarian your new pet is given a health examination, surgically sterilized and if it is old enough (4 months and older) it receives a rabies vaccination. You just pick up your new pet from the veterinarians' office when all of this is complete.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
