Adoption Process

1. The adoption process starts when you visit the shelter during open hours to meet your potential pet. (Please note that adoptions stop 30 minutes before closing to ensure staff has time to complete the paperwork). 2. Stop by the front desk if you need help navigating the shelter or have specific questions about an animal. 3. After informing a front desk staff member, you are able to meet with the animal one-on-one in one of our adoption rooms. 4. If you like the animal, you fill out an adoption questionnaire. NOTE: If you are looking at adult dogs and have resident dogs, we do require a dog-to-dog meet before our shelter dog can go home. In order to do a dog-to-dog meet, you first must fill out a adoption questionnaire. 5. Staff reviews and approves your paperwork. If approval is granted, we do another 20 minutes worth of paperwork and you take the animal home directly afterward. For liability reasons, we cannot hold onto an animal after an adoption is processed.
