How to Adopt


Step 1. Visit The Pets

Spend some time and get acquainted with the pet. Carefully consider if it is the right size, temperament, and breed for you. Consider daily care and home environment needs, training and other pets at home. We strongly suggest bringing your children and other pets with you to ensure a good match.

Step 2. The Application

Meet with our staff to fill out an application for the animal of your choice.

Step 3. The Adoption Process

After your application is reviewed by the adoption specialist and approved, an appointment will be made for you to return and pick up and pay for your new pet. Schedule approximately 15-20 minutes for paperwork.

Step 4. Spay/Neuter Surgery Agreement

If the pet is already altered, you may take your pet home immediately!

If not altered, the spay/neuter agrement must be completed which allows 30 days for you to get the pet altered. Part of your adoption fee is returned in the form of a voucher toward the spay/neuter surgery. This voucher can be used with any veterinarian of your choice.

Step 5. Bring your new pet home!!!

Important Notes.....

1) Most pets are held a mandatory period of time, and must pass a temperament test before being made available for adoption.

2) You must be at least 18 years of age to adopt from our shelter. 

3) City or out of town residents - You are welcome to adopt a pet from our shelter if you live anywhere in the United States, but it is a requirement to license your pet with your hometown.
