Adoption Hours and Process

To meet our pets you must first submit an adoption application.  Once your application is approved, we will contact you to schedule your initial visit.  The initial visit is usually scheduled between 1:30pm and 3:00pm seven days a week.  We do not schedule meet and greets without an approved application.  If you do not own the property you live in, you must provide the owner/landlord’s name and phone number on the application or send a copy of your lease/pet addendum including any breed or size restrictions.  Please make sure to fully complete your application.  Leaving questions blank or not including all requested information will delay your application.  We do our best to process applications as quickly as possible.

Adoption application approval means you are approved to adopt a cat or dog from us.  It does not mean you are necessarily approved for the animal you applied for.  There may be specific circumstances in your home that do not make it a good fit for one animal, but it may be a fine fit for another.
