How do I adopt an animal from your shelter?

There is no greater way to help Animal Shelters than to adopt.  You are saving the life of an animal that most likely finds itself at the shelter at no real fault of its own.  Most animals that find themselves at the shelter, came to us as strays with unknown backgrounds. Staff will use their training and knowledge to give their best guess on breed, age, temperament, and health. We do not have a Veterinarian on staff, but we are trained to watch for signs of illness. We will be completely honest with any illness or behavior issues we notice in any of the animals we have up for adoption. We will also try our best to explain the breed’s activity levels to ensure that this animal is a good fit for your lifestyle.  We cannot guarantee the health or temperament of any animals we have available for adoption.  All dogs available for adoption will have age-appropriate distemper/parvo vaccinations, Bordetella vaccinations if old enough, general deworming, and will be treated for fleas and ticks. Our dogs have been tested for heartworms if over 6 months of age. Rabies Vaccinations are required to be done within seven days of adoption, and the spay /neuter is required to be done within thirty days of adoption. Both are at the expense of the adopter if not done prior to adoption. All cats are given age-appropriate distemper vaccinations, general deworming, and are treated for fleas and ticks. Our cats have not been tested for Feline Leukemia or Feline AIDS virus. Rabies Vaccinations are required to be done within seven days of adoption, and the spay /neuter is required to be done within thirty days of adoption. Both are at the expense of the adopter if not done prior to adoption.

 It is required that you bring a crate or cage when adopting a cat.  Cat adoption fee is $20.  Dog adoption fee is $30.  We do recommend calling before driving out to make sure the animal is still available and not currently in foster.
