Adoption Policy

Adoption surveys are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis during our open hours. When you arrive, you can submit an adoption survey for the animal you are interested in, which will put you in the queue to meet with an adoption counselor.

Please Note: On very busy days, we cannot guarantee we will have staff available to facilitate a meet & greet with an animal OR process the adoption – we may ask that you return the next day we are open to the public.

During the counseling session, the adoption counselor will review important background information about the animal–including all medical and behavioral information we have on record. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and express any concerns you may have. We’ll talk about considerations to have when welcoming your newest family member into your home and other species-specific topics.

We DO NOT require meet & greets between your dog(s) and our adult shelter dogs, but we can conduct them upon request if we have appropriate staffing. We do not conduct meet and greets for puppies, cats, or kittens with your dog(s).
