Our Mission

Adoption Policy

On behalf of our homeless animals, we thank you for considering the adoption of a rescue pet!  If you would like to begin the adoption process, please complete and submit an adoption application form on our website ( and allow five business days for processing. We require at least one person from your household to visit the animal you are interested in before the day of adoption, so plan to make at least two trips to our shelter.

We strongly encourage all family members and roommates to participate in getting to know the pet of interest before a decision is made, ensuring a good fit for all. If you have other pets, please ask us if a meet-and-greet would be appropriate. See our shelter visitation hours and information. If you have questions at any time, please contact us.
