Please check our Municipal page at www.muni.org/animal for current information on our adoptable animals and strays. The Municipal page has updated pictures of adoptable animals about every 2-3 days. Volunteers take all of our pictures in their free time so please be patient if a picture doesn't come up with a description right away. The written information will always be 100% current.
Adopting a friend
The large majority of our adoptions are dogs and cats, but there are times when we have small pets like gerbils, ferrets, birds, reptiles and even farm animals available also.
We are not able to process adoptions for out-of -state, and we are unable to ship animals out of the city.
All cats and dogs adopted from us are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.
