Please note that if you live in a rental, you will need your landlord's approval for a new pet before your application is approved. You may have your landlord call the shelter, or have your landlord write a letter stating that you have approval to acquire a new pet.If you own your home, we will verify that you are the owner.
Once your application has been approved, the shelter requires payment in full prior to processing the adoption. We can accept payment by cash or check or credit card (there is a convenience fee for credit card use). The shelter does not "hold" animal - adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis. All cats and dogs that are adopted from the shelter must be spayed / neutered prior to going to their new homes. If the pet you are interested in was previously spayed / neutered, it can go home right away. If the pet you are interested in has not already been spayed / neutered, you will have to wait until your new friend has had her/his surgery. Pets cannot be scheduled for surgery until payment has been received and the adoption has been processed. Adoptions that are processed and paid prior to noon on Tuesday can go home on Thursday of the same week. Adoptions that are processed and paid after noon on Tuesday will be delayed by one week (the pet will go home the next Thursday). You may visit a pet you have adopted at the shelter, during business hours, as often as you would like until you can take your pet home. For more information visit the animal protection section.
