The process is quite simple!
- Come in person to meet the amazing animals for adoption!
- Describe the personality, size, and type of animal you are looking for.
- Meet the available animals for adoption.
- The perfect animal will choose you.
- Complete the adoption contract.
- If the animal is spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated (fee will be 75.00 for a dog and 50.00 for a cat). Again, current specials may be even lower.
- If the animal has not been fully vetted - appointment for vetting will be made and you will pay for the cost of spay/neuter, rabies, and micro-chip with/in 30 days (low cost options are available)! Your adoption counselor will explain the process!
If you have another animal we encourage your to make arrangements to bring your animal to the shelter to do introductions.
Have kids? Make sure to bring your children to allow us to help you introduce your children to your new animal!
Have questions? Ask our volunteers and staff, we are here to help. We are here to make sure that you and the animals are a perfect match.
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.
