(Most up-to-date listing is at

Step 2: Complete an Adoption Application Online or At the Shelter
Adoption applications can be submitted in person at the shelter during business hours.

Please note: Completion of an adoption application does not guarantee adoption of a pet.

Step 3: Adoption Application Will Be Processed

Within 24 hours, an adoption specialist will contact you regarding your adoption application and provide you with the next steps of adoption.

If you already own pets – we will require proof of current vaccinations administered by a veterinarian. We can verify with your veterinarian directly but providing your pets’ records can be much quicker. A meet and greet with current pets in the home is highly recommended and may be required for some adoptable pets.

If you rent/lease your home – we are happy to help find the perfect fit for you! Property owners generally have restrictions on the size, age, breed, and number of pets allowed on their properties. We will need to contact your landlord prior to adoption to ensure the pet you choose will be welcome.

You must be 21 years or older to apply for a pet.
