Reasa Currier,


Considering adding a new pet to your family? Great!! For full details on our adoption process, read the 'Steps to Adopt' page below.



Did you know you can view all our available pets online? Our Petango page is updated in real time, so as soon as a pet is available for adoption they'll show up on the webpage. And, as soon as they're adopted, their photos and bio will disappear. You can view all our available dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and more at the link below!

Curious about how to go about adopting a new pet from our shelter? It's pretty straightforward! Please review our new virtual adoption process steps for all the details!

Our adoption fees are structured based on species and age, and range from $5 (small animals like mice and hamsters) to $200 (puppies under six months of age).

Do you have a question about adopting a pet, such as what is included in the adoption fee? Visit our adoption FAQs page to see the most frequently asked adoption questions, and their answers.
