Our Mission

Due to limited staffing and a lack of space, most of our adoptable animals are in foster homes. For that reason, we ask that you email to make an appointment before coming out to visit our pets.

Adoption Policy

Thank you for considering adding one of our shelter pets to your family! Here is our process for adopting:

CATS & KITTENS: Our adoption fee for cats is $50 which includes FIV/FeLV testing, spay or neuter, FVRCP & Rabies vaccinations, and de-worming.

Most of our pets are in foster care, so we require an adoption application prior to meeting the pet. Once your application is approved, we set up a meeting for you to meet the pet to ensure a good fit. Lastly, we help you introduce your existing pets to the potential new pet to ensure a smooth transition.

To inquire about a specific pet or if you have other questions, please contact us at We work very hard to return all emails within 48 hours.
