Changes to our Adoption Policy

girl-dog5-300Our goal for every animal that enters our shelter is adoption into a responsible, permanent, loving home. We want the very best for our shelter pets and to ensure that our pets and adopters have a happy life together, we need a little time to review potential adopters’ applications. When we ask for two references, the name of an adopter’s vet or a landlord for renters, we need to have ample time to perform a background check for the pet’s long-term safety. To do that, we will no longer be able to provide same day adoptions.

If you and the pet of your dreams are meant for each other, we hope you will understand that your happy life together may need to wait two-four days.

We do encourage you to download and fill out an application ahead of time so we can begin the checking process earlier. You may mail or bring it in with you. To access our adoption application, click here. Thanks for understanding!
