Adoption Process

Our slogan, "A Friend Is Waiting" is underscored by our guiding principle to match the right dog or cat to the right home.

To that end the following is necessary to adopt:
  • Pre-adoption Form to be completed in full. This helps us match the right pet for you.
  • Vet reference provided - if you previously owned a pet.
  • For renters - copy of your lease or a letter from your landlord allowing you to have a pet.

All of the animals to be adopted have been vaccinated. The adoption fees vary for puppies/kittens and adult dogs/cats. Animals at the shelter are evaluated for temperament, and a great deal of effort goes into placing them in a home where human family members and animals are best suited to each other. We encourage all members of the family to be involved in the adoption process. Along with evaluation testing, many of the dogs begin basic obedience lessons, and already know some basic commands.
