Adoptions are made with the best interest of the pets in mind. We attempt to match the right person with the right pet. We ask each person surrendering an pet to provide detailed information about the pet. We are always happy to share what information we can about a pet and to help you find the right pet for your home. All pets placed for adoption receive a veterinary examination, their first set of shots, are dewormed and are spayed or neutered.
