Frequently Asked Questions
Do you require appointments?

Adoptions are on a walk-in basis with no appointment needed to make adopting as convenient as possible for our community.

Is there an application to fill out in advance?

Our goal is to make the adoption process as enjoyable as possible, so we focus paperwork on helping you find a great match for your household. All adoption paperwork is completed on-site.

Are photos available for a specific pet?

You can find photos, videos, and bios of our adoptable pets on our Adoptable Pets page

Do you have a specific breed?

We never know for sure the breed mix of our dogs since they are rescues. We do often receive dogs that appear to be a specific breed, and they will be listed in our website adoptables listing. 

Is fostering an option or a need?

Our primary goal is to place animals in forever homes. Fostering plays a critical role in helping animals that need a bridge to adoption, and we identify fostering opportunities based on a specific animal’s needs. To help in that very important lifesaving way, please learn more on our Foster page.
