Before You Adopt

There are always animals available for adoption at the Shelter. Sometimes, as when an animal is surrendered, quite a bit will be known about the animal and its habits, training, etc. Other times, with strays, educated guesses will be made as to age, temperament, training, etc. We encourage you to spend some time getting to know an animal you are considering adopting to ensure it is a good fit.

Ready for Pet Ownership

Please be sure that you are ready for the responsibility of pet ownership and have permission to house the pet in your residence. Many of the animals in the Shelter have been abandoned or surrendered because of their owner’s change in living situation. Before considering adopting an animal, be sure you are ready for the commitment.
