The adoptable puppies and adult dogs listed here are updated in real-time: if you see their photo, they are available for adoption at that moment. When they're adopted, their photo and profile are instantly removed from this page. Due to the number of animals we receive and adopt out each day, we cannot guarantee that the animals listed here will still be available when you arrive at our facility. If you would like to know if a particular animal is still available for adoption, please visit us in person. Due to very limited staffing, we are not able to quickly respond to calls or emails related to adoption inquiries.
If the dog you are interested in is listed as being in a Foster Home, you can fill out a special online application for foster animals here.
There is not a specific time that animals are added to our website. They are added after close the previous day and before we open the next day. Once we have opened for the day, we will not add any additional, available animals to our website.
Our shelter cannot guarantee the breed of any animal. Unless we have actual papers, we label all animals as a "Mix." We determine an animal's breed based primarily on physical traits that appear to match a particular breed's characteristics. Information supplied by an animal's previous owner will also be used to identify breed.
