About Our Shelter...
The mission of Animal House is to decrease the euthanasia rate of adoptable animals by:
· Collaborating with overpopulated and underserved shelters.
· Providing the community with education, information and outreach.
· Providing adoption opportunities for homeless animals and giving them what they need most — time to find their forever homes.

What kinds of dogs do you have and why?
Every week, Animal House rescues wonderful adoptable dogs/puppies of all breeds, sizes and ages. There are millions of pets that are homeless by no fault of their own. Record numbers of people are losing their jobs, homes, and lifestyles. This combined with the already existing pet over-population problem has greatly increased the number of pets in shelters. Today’s typical shelter dog is yesterday’s loving dog next door.
By adopting from a shelter, you are truly saving a life and making room for another one to be saved.
What is Animal House’s adoption process?
Every shelter has its own policies for approving adoptions. Our adoption screening process is designed to ensure that each animal is placed with a responsible person; someone who is prepared to make a lifelong commitment. An important part of the adoption process is matching the life-style and needs of the adopter with the personality and needs of the individual dog. Our goal is to provide the owner and animal with a mutually beneficial lifelong match.
Animal House has a never ending commitment to every dog that comes through our doors. That commitment is also extended to whomever the animal finds it’s forever home with. Whether it has been 7 days or 7 years from adoption we are here to help you and your Animal House Alum.
We have dogs both in the shelter and in foster care.
To see a dog that is currently in the shelter, please stop in to meet him/her along with your completed application at which time you can place a hold and set up an adoption time.
If the dog is in foster care (as indicated in profile), please submit your application and our staff will schedule a meet and greet with you and the foster home as soon as possible (usually within 1-2 days).
If you are interested in adopting a dog and we don't currently have what you are looking for, we recommend filling out and submitting an application for pre-approval. We will keep your approved application on file for 30 days (unless otherwise requested) so that you have time to find the right dog.
