Available Pets

We make every effort to keep this information up-to-date. However, we are unable to guarantee specific cats and dogs shown on this online list will still be available when you come to the animal shelter. You are welcome to call us to confirm the pet is still here at our animal shelter before you come visit us.

Imagine how stressful and noisy your home would be if complete strangers were walking in your door every few minutes, looking in each room of your house, then leaving. Your own dogs, whether happy about it or upset, would be mentally exhausted after such a stressful day.

Welcome to our new shelter policy, designed to help the dogs in our care feel calm and safe until their forever parents come for them.

You are welcome to visit us during open hours, but while our dogs enjoy stress free naps, socialization time, and quiet play, we will ask that you fill out an application in our lobby, if you haven’t completed one online, so we can help match you with just the right pet. We will then bring dogs out to you while you relax and enjoy the process.

Ready to adopt?

An approved application is required before taking any pet home. This includes us contacting 3 of your references and your veterinarian (if you currently have pets). Each pet is unique! We adopt pets based on a “best match” approach to ensure the adopter’s lifestyle and circumstances are suitable for the breed of choice. This means we may recommend alternate pets to you for consideration. We do this for the safety and long-term well-being of our adoptables. To expedite the adoption process, you may wish to complete an adoption application online prior to visiting the adoption center.
