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.
Adoptions include initial vaccinations, microchip,
certificate for a free examination from a veterinarian in Lincoln County, and two free training sessions. Everyone is spayed/neutered prior to adoption. All dogs receive a one-year license, collar, and identification tag.
Meet Our Animals
To meet an animal at our Shelter, please visit us during regular business hours or make an appointment. Please bring all members of your family (including dogs if you are adopting another dog). One of our friendly Animal Care Specialists will work with you to find a good match for your family.
How Do the Animals Come to Us?
Animals come to us lost as strays, surrendered by owners, or in protective custody due to abuse or neglect. We place all of our adoptable animals in homes or in the Second Chance Program (transporting to a rescue organization or another shelter), and we never euthanize animals for space. We provide extensive medical treatment, thanks to our Medical Fund, and all possible behavior modification training to give every animal their chance at a new life.
Keep Visiting Us!
If you don't find your perfect match with us right away, our Animal Care Specialists are willing to provide you with additional resources. Our best advice is to keep visiting us, or checking our website of available pets, as your special someone is sure to walk through our doors soon.
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.
