In light of the recent developments surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and governmental regulations, we have made the decision to prioritize adopters who have made appointments with us, however we are beginning to accept walk-ins if time allows. The best way to ensure you will be able to meet with a pet the day you come in is to fill out our adoption questionnaire and secure an appointment. We are requiring adopters to continue to wear a mask while inside our facility.

You must submit an adoption questionnaire below and be counselled over the phone prior to an appointment being made.

If you are intending to adopt from our facility, we ask for your patience and understanding as we go through these uncertain times as a community. We greatly appreciate your willingness to adopt and hope to see you soon.

We need your support more now, than ever before. 

If you see a dog or cat that you are interested in, we ask that you fill out our Pre- Adoption Questionnaire below. Please be aware that if you rent or do not own your current residence, you will need to provide proof you are eligible to own a pet in your home.

We carefully screen our adoptive families so that the right animal will be matched to the right family. To make the transition easier, an introduction will be set up on the neutral territory of the shelter for any existing family dogs to meet the potential adoptee.
