We do have an adoption process including an application. We make every effort ensure a direct adoption is a good placement. We work with the potential adopter to find the right pet for their home.


All adoptable animals have been altered ( spay/neuter), vaccinated to date, had flea preventative as well as deworming.  Dogs have been heartworm tested and cats have been tested for feline leukemia/feline aids   Microchips with lifetime registration are included with all dog/cat adoptions.
