How to Adopt

By adopting a shelter pet you are saving the lives of two animals, the one you adopt and the one who takes his or her place at the shelter.

Thank you for considering adopting a rescue animal. By adopting a shelter pet you are saving the lives of two animals, the one you adopt and the one who takes his or her place at the shelter.

Step One: Find the right dog or cat

Browse our animals online and come to our shelter to meet them in person. We want to help you find the perfect match!

Step Two: Fill out an application

When you complete the application please be honest about your history and your household. It’s important for the health and safety of both the animal and your family. Adopters must be at least 18 years old to adopt a cat or dog. Adopters who rent their home must have landlord approval in order to adopt.

Once your application is reviewed and approved we ask that you pay the non-refundable adoption fee for your pet.

Your pet will need to be spayed or neutered before being released to you. We are connected to several low cost clinics that we will set you up with. Many pets are already spayed or neutered and will be ready to go home with the approved application and fee.

Make sure your new pet fits in well with your family and lifestyle.

Step Four: Congratulations! You are the new mom or dad to a fur-baby!
