Interested in adopting an animal?

Please use the e-mail address listed on the animals page to reach the appropriate Adoption Coordinator. Please allow up to 72 hours to receive a response since our Adoption Coordinators are volunteers. Most of our animals are in foster homes so arrangements to meet an animal can be made through the Adoption Coordinator. You can also attend any of our adoption events to meet a number of cats or dogs.

Interested in Volunteering?
