VISIT THE SHELTER to view our cats and dogs

If you are interested in adopting a cat or dog, we are currently open to the public Tuesday through Sunday from 12-4pm. We are closed on Monday. When you arrive, you can submit an adoption survey for the animal you are interested in! Adoption surveys are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. On very busy days, we cannot guarantee we will have staff available to facilitate a meet & greet with an animal OR process the adoption  – we may ask that you return the next day we are open to the public.

NOTE: For animals that are in foster, interested adopters can fill out the online survey located in the animal’s bio on our website. Once the survey is received, an adoption counselor will give you a call to conduct a counseling session and if it’s a good fit, will make an appointment with you to meet the animal!


During the counseling session, the adoption counselor will review important background information about the animal–including all medical and behavioral information we have on record. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and express any concerns you may have. We’ll talk about considerations to have when welcoming your newest family member into your home and other species-specific topics.

If you are adopting an adult dog (not a puppy), we may require a separate meet & greet appointment with your current resident dog(s) to make sure they are compatible prior to adoption.

For Barn Animals

Please fill out the appropriate adoption survey below and an Adoption Counselor will call you to make an appointment:



Note: Most barn animal adoptions require a home visit, so the counselor will review all necessary steps with you when they receive your adoption survey.
