Adoption Policy

Due to the high volume of calls our shelter receives, we ask that you submit an application before contacting us about an animal.

The application process requires both personal and vet references. The fees are based on the type of animal and their age. We have no set fees for senior animals, instead we ask for a donation that seems appropriate to the individual. All animals adopted from our facility are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.

Application are available online or by request.
