Shelter FAQs

We have no restrictions on residence. However, adopters will need to come to our shelter for adoption. We do not transport our animals.

Additional adoption info

The whole process is easy and takes a matter of in-office minutes. While we like for our animals to find homes, we require adopting families to meet in our shelter. That way you can meet your new family member and make sure he/she is the one for you. Then we do the paperwork which takes only a little time. We look forward to meeting you.
