The best place to view our adoptable pets is at the shelter during business hours. Our current adoptable dogs and cats at the shelter can also be found online.
Our adoptions are processed on a first come, first serve basis so we do not accept appointments. Come to the shelter anytime during our adoption hours to meet the pets we have available for adoption.
You can call the shelter at 271-4877 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know which animal you are interested in. We will contact the foster family and give them your information so that they can schedule a meet and greet.
You can call the P4P Coordinator at 271-5333 or email her at email@example.com to let her know which animal you are interested in. She will contact the volunteer P4P Coordinator and give them your information so that they can schedule a meet and greet.
Our adoptions are processed on a first come, first serve basis and we do not place any holds on adoptable pets.
Our adoptions are processed on a first come, first serve basis but animals on stray hold must be held for five business days including a Saturday allowing the owners an opportunity to claim their animal. If you find a stray pet you want to adopt, you can pay the adoption fee in full as a deposit. If the animal is redeemed by its owner, the deposit will be refunded to you by mail. If the animal is not claimed by its owner during its hold period, you will have one business day from the day the animal becomes available to come to the shelter and complete the adoption paperwork. If you do not complete the adoption within one business day, you will forfeit the adoption deposit.
Adoption fees include spay/neuter, preventative vaccinations, a microchip, city registration, and other testing/preventative care the animal received while in our care.
If you must return your adopted animal, you will have 30 days to return the animal to the shelter without paying relinquishment fees. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our adoption team if you need help acclimating your new pet to your home. It can take time for animals to adjust to new environments.
Please contact the shelter at 271-4877 and we can direct you to a staff member from the animal care team that can help you.
No. Our adoptions are processed on a first come, first serve basis so that we can make adoptions simple and convenient.
Yes, most of the time your adopted pet can go home with you the same day. There are times that pets must stay in our care after they have been adopted to complete preventative care.
