Adoption Process

Frequently Asked Questions

No. Any animal ​adopted from the shelter must be spayed or neutered as per state law. There are no exceptions.

Since most of our animals are stray we do not have their history. We do offer a thirty day return policy if the adoption does not work out.

The attendants or officers do their best to determine the breed of the dogs that arrive at the shelter.

We receive large dogs because people often lose interest in when they have passed their cute puppy stage, or the animals become too much to handle because of inadequate training. 

We do get small dogs but they are adopted quickly.

Fees are charged to help offset the high costs of housing, caring and providing medical attention for the animals.  The adoption fee includes spay or neuter surgery, a microchip and all initial immunizations. 

These fees do not cover the actual costs and are much less than what you'd pay for individual services.
