Looking for a new furry family member? We can help!


Animals currently available for adoption are posted on our adoptable pets pages:

Adoptions are by appointment.

*Due to COVID-19 restrictions on public entry, we are unable to place holds on animals that are ready and able to leave the shelter. Exceptions may be made for animals with special needs, such as those that require multiple meets before going home with their adopters. We thank you for your understanding.*

Make an appointment to meet our adoptable animals.

To set up an appointment, fill out an online adoption application:

Staff will contact you to schedule an appointment once your application has been received.

  • We cannot guarantee that specific animals will be available at the time of your appointment.
  • Cat adoption appointments allow you to walk through our catteries where you can meet our adoptable cats and kittens. Dog adoption appointments take place outside. If you would like to meet more than one dog, please specify in your application.
  • Some animals will require more than one meeting with their potential adopter before they can be adopted. In this case, we will work out a schedule with you to facilitate multiple appointments with that animal.
  • Due to safety restrictions on public access to the shelter, we cannot place holds on animals that are ready and able to leave the shelter. If the animal you are interested in does not require multiple adoption meetings, please come to your appointment ready to take them home that day.
