Adoption Overview

Adopting an animal should not be an impulse decision or done in haste. Please take the time to research which breed would be best for you & your family. We can help you with this at the shelter or you can do it online at We also recommend that you make frequent visits to the shelter – spend time with the animals you might be interested in – get to know them & let them get to know you.

We want our animals to be happy with you and you to be happy with the animal(s) you’ve chosen to become a member of your family.

Cats/kittens should be kept strictly indoors to avoid disease, injury, loss and predators.
