Pre Adoptable-Stray Wait
While a pet is being held for the required number of days for an owner to reclaim him or her, the pet can be “pre-adopted” by someone else. In the event that no owner comes forward, the adoption will be completed.
The pet may be currently receiving medical care or is part of an investigation. Once the pet is cleared by the veterinary staff or by animal control, the status will change to “Pre-Adoptable” or “Available”.
A “Ready-to-Go” pet has been vaccinated, microchipped and spayed or neutered and can go to his or her new home today.

All Adoption Applications must be completed and submitted online.
Only ONE APPLICATION PER PET! Do not combine multiple pets onto one Adoption Application.
Adoptions are on a first-submitted, first-served basis. If a pet receives more than one Adoption Application, the first application received by us (based on time of receipt) will be the one that is considered.
You must be 18 years of age or older to adopt. A valid Driver's License or photo ID will be required.
The pet adoption is not final until we verify that the adoption is complete and you are assigned a day and time to pick up your pet.
If you do not arrive at the designated date and time, and do not contact us, you will forfeit your adoption.
When you arrive, you will be alllowed to interact with your selected pet.
If you prefer not to adopt the pet you have selected, you will be asked to resubmit another Adoption Application for another pet.
If you select a dog or cat that is still under a "stray hold" time (the period where we are waiting to see if the pet's owner will come to claim him), then we will review your Adoption Application with you and will finalize the process once the hold time is completed.
All of our adoption fees and deposits are waived.
