Current adoption process: Adopters must be 18 years of age or older. View available Cats or Dogs. Complete and submit a questionnaire and submit a copy of your Driver’s License to [email protected] with your first and last name, and pet you are interested in, in the subject line so we can process your application. From there, a member of our team will give you a call to discuss the pet’s specific needs and whether the pet will be a good fit for your lifestyle, and potentially discuss other pets as well (we call this pre-adoption counseling). You can expect to hear back from us within 24 hours of your survey and questionnaire submission. If you are ready to move forward with the adoption, an appointment will be set up for you to meet with the pet. We strive for same day adoptions, so will work to schedule your adoption appointment as quickly as we can after your pre-adoption counseling is complete. Please be sure you are ready to adopt/take your pet home when you submit your survey and questionnaire. As soon as your appointment is made, the pet will be considered on hold for you. Appointments are to be attended and cancelled timely. Failure to attend an appointment will result in the pet being placed back up for immediate adoption, and forfeiture of your appointment. Walk-ins are welcome, but scheduled appointments will take precedence. Our team will work with you to get the adoption process started and schedule additional pre-adoption counseling or an adoption appointment at our next available time. If you are adopting a cat, please bring a carrier to safely transport your new friend home, and if you are adopting a dog, please bring a collar and a leash. Carriers and leashes are available for a donation at our shelter.
