Adoption Center

Every time you adopt from us you save two lives – because every pet adopted makes room for another!

Are you looking for a new addition to your family? Would a beautiful tabby cat fit in at your house? What about an adorable, high-energy puppy? Could a calm, house-trained, mature dog be just what you’re looking for?

Whatever your desire, the adoption center routinely houses over 150 animals awaiting a home and a second chance at a full life. Our dogs & cats are truly “one of a kind” because they all have a story prior to being rescued. Some of their stories are dramatic and others are unfortunate. Their varied pasts are proof-positive we truly have “designer, one of a kind” animals!

Come out and meet the pets currently available at the adoption center. Potential adopters are thoroughly screened. A successful union is extremely important and making the right match is our goal! Our knowledgeable Placement Counselors will be happy to answer any questions you may have and will offer suggestions on how to make the transition with your new family member a success!

  • Pet products and novelties are sold to defray ongoing expenses associated with the rescue mission
  • Adoption fees supplement the costs of spay and neuter surgeries
  • Full service grooming services are available. Proceeds help to fund the costly rescue process
  • All animals are microchipped to assist in their safe return should they become lost; however, a collar and identification tag is advised and is the quickest way to recover your beloved pet. Bring your pet into the adoption center to be microchipped. It only takes a minute. You will be secure in knowing you’ve taken all the necessary steps to assist in the safe return of your pet
  • Ask about animals residing in foster care. Animals are placed in foster care until they are ready for adoption or until space is available at the adoption center. Many animals in foster care are receiving medical treatment for an injury or illness, are awaiting vaccines, or are scheduled for a spay/neuter surgery
  • Does your dog run the other way when called? Could he/she use a few manners? Enroll in four week training classes and improve your dog’s behavior. Don’t delay…call today!
  • Has the mailman, family and friends started avoiding your house? Is your collection of matched pairs of shoes dwindling? Has your dog been banned from the dog park? If so, consider Doggie Daycare offered Tuesday through Friday. Call to make your reservation.

Each day we receive numerous calls from people that are unable to care for their pet(s). We wish we could help every person calling us; however, it is not always possible. To assist owners in finding refuge for pets they can no longer care for, a list of other rescue groups and shelters is provided to anyone requesting help.

We keep a log of all calls regarding lost and found pets. Please provide as many details as possible when giving information about a lost pet or if reporting a found pet. Remember that pets wearing identification tags have a 95% greater chance of being returned to their owner. A tag with outdated information is not effective.

Tags are available at the adoption center and will offer pet owners a peace of mind. As a second line of defense, consider microchipping your pet when possible. Collars and tags can become lost from your pet but a microchip is permanent!
