Adoption Process

Come visit our Adoption Centers, open daily, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Adoption visits end at 4:30 p.m.

Placing an animal on hold:

If you need additional time to think about your adoption prior to taking an animal home, we offer an adoption hold program. You may place an animal on hold only in-person and during regular operating business hours for a $20 fee. Holds expire after 24 hours, are non-refundable and are not applied towards the adoption fee.

Adoption fees:

The adoption fees help offset the cost of housing, feeding, training and medical care for the thousands of animals we see at our Shelter each year. Adoption fees may include spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccinations, a microchip, a bag of Purina Pro Plan food, 30 days of free pet insurance and, a voucher for a free veterinary visit. These items hold no cash value if not applicable.

Returning an adopted animal:

Though we hope an animal is the right fit when they go to a new home, we know that is not always the case. If an animal is relinquished within 30 days of their adoptions, 100% of the adoption fee will be refunded.
