NOTE:  Adoptions end at 4:30 pm. However, the adoption time may end earlier in the day due to extreme weather conditions, staffing availability, customer demand, & adoption wait times.

 

The list of adoptable animals is updated hourly. However, please note that there are occasions, for example, when the website may go offline or may not be updated due to website maintenance or technical glitches.

If you are interested in a FOSTER DOG or FOSTER CAT, please click on the animal's thumbnail photo for more details. It will contain an email address so that you may contact the canine foster team or the feline foster team about your interest in a specific animal. 

IMPORTANT!  While the list of adoptable animals is updated hourly, we CANNOT guarantee that any of the adoptable animals will still be available when you inquire in person, by phone, or by email. Animals are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and are adopted frequently and quickly. We do NOT take requests to reserve an animal.

In addition, the available date of an animal is subject to change without prior notice. On or before the available date, an animal may be transferred to another shelter or a rescue group, placed into foster care, reclaimed by an owner, or scheduled for a spay/neuter surgery.

 

ADOPTION POLICY AND PROCESS

Did you find an animal that you might be interested in meeting? Write down the Animal ID and come to the shelter during regular business hours.

Before you meet with an animal, we will ask you to fill out a one-page adoption survey so we can make sure that it’s a perfect match for you and for the animal. Make sure that you allow plenty of time to meet with your new friend and to go through the adoption process. Adoptions end 30 minutes before closing time, and the shelter remains open for the last 30 minutes for viewing only. Please be aware that the adoption time may end earlier in the day due to extreme weather conditions, staffing availability, customer demand, and adoption wait times.

A large majority of animals come to the shelter with unknown medical histories. Most veterinarians honor a free health check visit for a newly adopted shelter pet. Keeping pets healthy is very important; we do recommend regular check-ups with a veterinarian. For more information, please read the information about Caring For Your Pet.
