All adoption fees on cats, dogs, and small companion animals will be waived for one day only!
We will open at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 15th


  • Are you at least 18-years-old? Great! You can apply to adopt!
  • Please bring a valid photo ID
  • All adults in your household must agree with the adoption, so they must meet the animal in-person, or send along written approval
  • If you rent, you will need to provide verification that you can have the the type of animal you want to adopt
  • We will ask that you fill out the Meet Your Match survey (for dogs and cats) or a Small Animal Application onsite or on our website and meet with an adoption counselor here at the shelter. It helps us make a good match!
  • Some animals may have additional requirements based on their needs
  • In case your new pet is available to go home the same day, it is a good idea to bring the equipment necessary to safely transport your new pet to your home (e.g.: plastic cat carrier, sturdy collar, leash, harness, appropriate small animal cage, etc.)

Adoption Center Hours:
