Why Pit Bulls Make Great Pets!

Adoptable Animals

Don’t see the pet you want?  Fill out our pet request form and we will try to contact you if a pet comes to our center matching your preferences.

20% discount if you adopt 2 pets during your visit (not applicable during adoption specials).

Adoption Forms

Feel free to download our adoption forms: CAT or DOG and bring it with you when you come to adopt.

The process is simple; come in and visit with the pet you are interested in, and we will talk with you to see if it is a good match. Please bring with you a photo ID, and you are welcome to bring in your dog to do an introduction with your new pet. If the pet is not spayed or neutered, we will schedule their appointment for our next available transport day to the spay/neuter clinic.

We have dedicated volunteers and staff who can help you choose the right match for your family. Just ask for assistance, let us know what your needs are and we can help you find your next friend.

Placing an animal on ‘hold’: we want your adoption experience to be as pleasant and stress-free as possible. We allow potential adopters to place holds on pets so that they can take their time making adoption decisions, introduce family members and other pets. Holds may be placed over the phone, email or in person, and in the case of a “tie”, the individual physically visiting the shelter and the animal will be awarded the first hold on the pet. 

1st hold: $30 per 24 hours
2nd hold and beyond: $15

Hold fees are non-refundable and are not applied towards the adoption fee.
