Adopt An Animal
Families should visit the Animal Center and meet an animal that is available for adoption. Every family member living in the residence is required to visit the animal to ensure a good match is made. Once a specific animal has been decided upon, an application for adoption must be completed and submitted to Animal Center staff.
All applications take, at minimum 24 hours to process. You will be asked to think about your adoption decision overnight and call back the following morning to advise us of your final decision. Once the staff has approved your application to adopt, we will call you and set up an appointment to pick up your new animal.
