Adoption Policy

Adoption Process

Our goal is to find you the perfect pet for your family. We recommend that you consider what age, size and temperament of cat or dog would best suit your lifestyle, home, and family. You will be asked to fill out an adoption application and visit the shelter to meet the pet you are interested in adopting. You may download an application from our website, and bring it with you the day you visit. You may also fill out an adoption application at the shelter if you prefer. An Adoption Counselor will review your application and help make sure the pet you are interested in is a good match for you and your family.
