If you have lost a pet, first check our Petfinder site to see if your dog or cat is on our Lost and Found or adoptable list. If he is not, come by the shelter and look for your pet. Your visit is the best chance your companion will have of getting back home to you. If you still have not found him, give us your contact information in case he/she is brought in to the shelter.
New animals come to the shelter daily, so keep checking back.
If are looking for a specific breed, size or temperament of an animal to adopt, please give us your contact information so we can alert you if someone matching your description comes in.
Our goal is to reunite or rehome each and every animal who comes into our care. EVERY dog and EVERY cat deserves a loving home.
