Purple Circle Number TwoClick on the link below if you want to foster a dog. Fostering lets you see how the dog does in your home. If an owner does not come forward, you’ll be first in line to adopt. If you decide not to adopt, we’ll help you find an adopter. It's a great way to help a shelter dog and potentially find your next best friend.

TO LEARN MORE ABOUT FOSTERING & TO SIGN UP, VISIT THE FOSTER A DOG PAGE.

WE ARE ACCEPTING REQUESTS FOR ADOPTION OR FOSTERING BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

With this new process, you will see fewer adoptable pets on the website than normal. Adoptable pets are removed from the website after we have received a certain number of interested parties. Due to the high demand of adoptable pets, we routinely receive multiple requests for adoption shortly after they are posted on the website.

The pages showing our adoptable pets are updated hourly. However, we cannot guarantee that any of the adoptable pets will still be available when you email us. Pets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

 

ADOPTION FEES WAIVED FOR MILITARY VETERANS

The dog and puppy adoption fees are waived for any person who presents a current and valid driver's license or identification card with VETERAN printed on it. Each military veteran is allowed one (1) dog or puppy adoption every 6 months.
