I'm Ready to Find a New​ Best Friend!

To begin your exciting search for your new best friend, please start by browsing all of the dogs and cats in our care:

View Dogs View Cats

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.

To place a hold on a pet, simply come to our shelter and complete either a Dog Adoption Application or a Cat Adoption Application.
