We’re Open!

...but you need an APPOINTMENT for some services.

YES! We're still handling adoptions at our shelter by appointment only for approved applications. Before you can adopt, you need to choose one or more animals you're interested in and then fill out an application on our website by clicking the pink ADOPT ME button. Once your application is approved, we will contact you to make an appointment to meet the available animal(s) you are interested in.

YES! We are accepting donations to help the animals at our shelter. Donations can be dropped off daily, without appointment and can be left in the green labeled bins located directly outside the main shelter door. A list of items we can/cannot accept can be found in the donation drop area. You can also learn more about how to support us by clicking here to visit our wish list.

YES! We are still accepting volunteers for select positions! To read more about our program and needs, please click here to visit our volunteer page.

Visitors must wear a CDC-approved face mask at all times while they are in the shelter.
