What is our adoption process?
Are we a no-kill shelter?
Yes! We believe every animal deserves another chance. We will provide loving care for our pets with no time limit.
Yes. However, there are a few steps to our surrender process, every animal will have a behavioral analysis done prior to acceptance and a surrender donation is required.
*Currently, we have a surrender waiting list for both dogs and cats.*
*If you would like to be placed on the waiting list, please contact us.*
May I stop by the shelter to see animals at anytime?
