Our Adoption Process:

Our process is simple! Come visit us or search our online pet database for adoptable cats and dogs. Once you find your new best friend, you can fill out our application either in person, by email, or by fax. Make sure that if you're renting, your landlord allows pets. If you currently own animals, double check that your pets are up-to-date on their shots. Our staff will then process the application for one to two days and call you when you've been approved. Once this process is completed, you're ready to sign the papers and take your cat or dog home.

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.
