Special Note

Our list of dogs and cats includes both adoptable pets that are ready to go home immediately and lost pets waiting to be reunited with their owner.

In order to give all of our pets every opportunity to find a home, you may place a $20 non-refundable deposit on a lost dog or cat. If the pet is not claimed by his owner, you will be able to adopt the pet. If the owner is reunited with his dog or cat, you may transfer the $20 deposit to another pet. In both instances, your deposit is applied toward the adoption fee at the time of adoption.

To place a hold on a pet, simply come to our shelter and complete an adoption application
