Visit Us: Meet Your Fur-Ever Friend!

If you are looking to surrender an animal, click here

Our adoption centers are open to the public with no reservation necessary and we can’t wait to see you! Guests are still required to wear a mask while in our building.

  1. Please know that our pets cannot be reserved, and will be adopted to the first qualified applicant.
  2. Please follow all our health and safety protocols during your visit. That includes wearing a mask inside our adoption centers for all guests who are 5 years or older, regardless of Covid-19 vaccine status.
  3. Please leave your current pets at home, as we cannot accommodate them during your visit.
  4. Narrow your selection to the one or two animals you are most interested in meeting.
  5. Submit your completed Adoption Interest Form at the desk at least 30 minutes before closing. When we have a high volume of visitors there may be a wait and/or we may ask that you return the next day to complete the adoption process.
  6. Visit the Gift Shop or have a cup of coffee on us (where available) if an adoption counselor is not immediately available! We anticipate that visitors will wish to meet one or more animals and ask questions before making their adoption selection. We recommend allowing at least one hour (more time on weekends and holidays) to complete an adoption.

Thank you for your interest in adoption. We look forward to seeing you soon!
