Additional adoption info

We require all all household members in the home to come to the shelter and meet with the animal they are interested in.

If there is any other dogs that live in the home have to come to the shelter for a meet and greet with the animal you are interested in.

All animals in the home have to be up to date on vaccines and spay or neutered. We require verification from the vet you use.

If you rent we do require landlord approval for an animal to be on the property.

Lastly we do have an adoption application that can be filled out online prior to your visit to the shelter or it can also be done while visiting.
