Adoption Procedure and Policy

At this time, we are accepting appointments to meet pets for adoption, Tuesdays between 5:30-7:00pm, and Saturdays between 12pm-2pm. Please call or email us to schedule an appointment. To protect our volunteers and visitors, we will require everyone visiting the shelter to wear a mask, and appointments will be limited to 2 people per family. We suggest browsing our website listings of available pets before your appointment.

Two visits to the shelter are required to complete the adoption. The first would be to meet the pet you're interested in adopting and to fill out the adoption application form which must be reviewed and approved by an adoption counselor. This is to help determine if the adopter and pet are compatible.

We hope you will agree the welfare of these pets is our first consideration in processing all adoptions. The adoption process of this shelter may be somewhat different from larger shelters. We do our best to make available healthy pets with appropriate temperaments and to place them in the home that would be most suitable for them. All adoption applications will be reviewed for approval by an adoption counselor who is also a board member. The adoption counselors have the right to accept or deny any application based on the information provided.

An application for adoption must be made in person at our shelter. We wish to make the adoption experience a positive one for all adopters. For this reason it's important that we are assured the adopter is fully prepared for the responsibility involved in caring for a pet. Long-distance adoption applications must still be made in person and may require extra documentation.

Please note this is a small shelter and we are not able to ship pets to new homes.
