Adoption Policies

  • All stray animals are held for a minimum of 3 working days before they are released for adoption. Applications may be submitted to allow animals still on their stray holding period to be reserved for adoption on the date of their availability in the order that applications are received. Complete the Adoption Application Form.
  • Owner surrendered animals that are turned in to the Shelter are available for adoption the same day that they are brought to the Shelter. 
  • All animals currently available for adoption operate on a first come, first serve basis. Therefore we do not accept down-payments towards an animal nor will we hold an animal for an individual.
  • The $80 adoption fee is the same for the general public as well as a rescue organization, unless the rescue organization has been approved through our Rescue Group Adoption Program. Learn more about our Rescue Group Adoption Program
  • No adoptions will be processed after 4 p.m. weekdays and 3 p.m. on Saturdays due to daily closing procedures.
