You must be 18 years old or older in order to adopt one of our pets.
You must be allowed to have pets where you live.

The online canine (dog) and feline (cat)adoption applications (see below section "adoption forms" to download) are for your convenience only, and do not guarantee that the pet of your choice will be available for adoption. We reserve the right to refuse any adoption to any person for any reason.
All adoptive homes must be stable, compassionate, and capable of meeting the veterinary needs of the pet.
A home visit may be done prior to adoption.
Effective June 15, 2015: Due to increased veterinary costs and fees, our adoption fee will be $200 per dog. Applications received on or after June 15, 2015 will be subject to this fee. Kitten and cat adoption fees will remain $100. Thank you so much for your understanding.
