We try to have every animal spayed or neutered before adoption.  This may result in a waiting period between adoption and when you can bring the animal home.

We often get asked if we adopt outside the two counties we service.  The answer is YES!  We do not ship dogs, but as long as anyone is willing to drive we will adopt.
