adoption center hours

Monday: Closed

Tuesday – Friday: 12pm – 7pm

Saturday and Sunday: 12pm – 6pm

The Adoption Process times can vary depending on the number of patrons we are serving.  Due to the time commitment of adopting a new pet, we are unable to start animal introductions, place adoption holds, or process adoptions at least 30 minutes prior to close. We look forward to providing you with our full attention as you embark on the exciting adventure of becoming a new pet parent!


We do not accept applications for animals who are not yet available for adoption, nor do we keep a wait list.


Please note: Some animals in our care have a different adoption protocol; please refer to the animal’s profile for information on how to apply.
