Pictures of dogs available for adoption can be viewed below.  Adoption fees include spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworming, microchip and heartworm test.  Regular Fees: Dogs - $85 (dogs over 5 years old $40); Adoption to a person over 55 years old - $40. During the month of January, all dogs over 25lbs and all cats may be adopted for $25! Note: All standard adoption criteria applies.

If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, we invite you to visit our shelter to meet them in person during our hours of operation. Once you select a dog to adopt, then you fill out a short adoption application form. After you have been approved (and after any stray holding periods are up), our veterinarian will do the vet work (spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, etc) and you will be called when they are ready for pickup. We and our fabulous furry friends hope to see you soon! Please note that it is first-come, first-serve of approved applications and if you see the words "Pending Adoption" next to the dog's name, that means that someone has already been approved to adopt the dog if not reclaimed.
