Adoptions are happening!

Adopting a cat or dog now is a perfect time to bring a new pet into your home.  The Shelter has plenty of loving animals waiting for homes.  Adopting now makes room at the shelter for incoming strays that need a place to stay. 

Normal adoption procedures remain in place to help ensure the animals are being adopted into appropriate homes for individual needs. 

How to adopt an animal:
