Thank you for your interest in adopting!


Please read the following before applying. We look forward to matching you with a new best friend!

COVID-19 UPDATE – PLEASE READ: At this time, we are only accepting adoption applications for specific animals currently in our shelter and foster homes.

  • If you are interested in adopting an urgent animal featured on our social media, please submit your online application below and enter the pet’s information on the line at the top. 
  • If you are interested in adopting a specific pet who is in foster care, please submit your online application below, and then reach out to the foster parent directly (their contact info is noted in the pet’s bio on our adoption page) to let them know you have done so. 
  • If we are able to match you with the pet you listed we will reach out to you.  
  • If you do not hear from us, the pet has found their forever home! You will only be contacted by our adoptions staff if we have another pet who may be a good fit for you. 

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding!
