Please consider volunteering!

To adopt a dog or cat from us, start by filling out our online application under the adoption tab above or pick up an application from our front office.  We will check your references, including employment, landlord approval, and your veterinarian.  We may schedule a home visit.   We will notify you in writing if your application is approved, denied or incomplete.    If approved, we work with you to find the best match of our available animals for your lifestyle.  If we do not have a good match for you, we will add you to our waiting list and notify you when a perfect match becomes available.    Please answer all questions on the application,  we will not process your application until it is complete.
