Are you ready to adopt?

Many of our animals that come to us came from unstable or neglectful living environments. These animals need the time, love, and care of their new adopter and for their adopter to be patient throughout the process. Adopting an animal does help our shelter, but we want you to be fully prepared for the big lifestyle change it will be on your family.

  • You must be at least 21 years old to adopt one of our pets.
  • Are you willing to be patient and fair with your newly adopted animal?
  • Are you ready to be responsible for the animal physically, emotionally, and financially?
  • Are you willing to consult local trainers if there are behavioral issues?
  • Are you willing to work through issues that may arise with your current pets?

Adoption Fees:

Puppy (0-12 months) $200

Adults (1-5 years) $175

Senior (6+ years) $85


Applications can be printed and filled out at home, and returned to us via email. Just take a picture of your completed application and send it to [email protected]! It takes up to 24 hours to process an application in email or in person. We will then schedule a time for you to visit the pet, to make sure it is a good fit.

All of our dogs are listed from longest to shortest in the shelter. Please keep that in mind when looking for your forever friend. To start the adoption process come in and visit to find your new family member. If you’re having trouble picking a dog, our staff/volunteers can assist you with finding a good match for your family and lifestyle. After you have chosen your new forever family member, you will need to complete a written adoption application.  All of the people living in your home will have to come and visit before final application approval is given. If you are adopting a dog, all other dogs at the residence will have to come in. Our kennel staff will conduct a supervised meet and greet with your current pet and our shelter dog.  If you bring your dog here for a visit, DO NOT BRING IT IN THE SHELTER OR MEET IT OUTSIDE WITH THE ADOPTING DOG unless under the supervision of our staff.

Additional Information is available about each dog if you select their photo below.
