Meet Pretty!

If you have been considering adopting a dog, now is the perfect time!

Help us find our furry friends new homes! 

All adopted dogs will be spay/neutered,  microchipped, etc. prior to going to their new homes.

During this event, adopting families will go through the same standard adoption process they would if applying at other times, which includes an application and screening requirements. In addition to the $50 adoption fee, adopters who live in Jackson County will also be responsible for paying $25 for an annual dog license.

Meet Zeus!

This event is made possible by Friends of the Animal Shelter, which will pay the discount for every dog adopted this weekend and provides the volunteers needed to hold this event.
