Adoptable Animals


We currently have the following animals available for adoption. Cats and Dogs are listed separately, while all other animals are grouped together. Animals are automatically uploaded each hour to the website. The links below will open the PetHarbor.com site in a new browser window. This is the company that hosts our animal postings. Click the link to view the animals that are currently in-house. Be sure to check both lists of animals that you are interested in adopting as after a 1 week stray-hold period lost animals are generally available and applications are accepted during this stray-hold period. All lost pets remain listed under Lost Animals even after the stray-hold period.

 

Before You Consider Adoption


Please be aware that during the worldwide health emergency, our shelter is not open for walkthrough. You must fill out an application on the pet you are interested in. Once you are selected for a pet, a time will be scheduled for you to come in to see the animal. For information on our adoption rules see Temporary Adoption Policy and Application Policy.

Adoption Services


You want to add a pet to your family and are looking to adopt. You have made an important and long-term decision that will affect and better your life for years to come. Many of the animals that come into the shelter are great pets that will fit into just about any loving home. Some others will need work to adjust and others still will need specialized attention. But all of them deserve a chance at a new home. Each pet will need time to adjust to the new environment and learn the new routines and expectations. Make sure you are willing to give that time and that you keep consistent rules for your new family member.
