Not every pet will fit into your lifestyle. Our adoption counselors will ask you many questions to determine which pet will do well in your home and which will not. This way we can be sure the pet you get will be the pet you want, to love for its lifetime


Please, understand that we deal with homeless or unwanted animals. Many of our animals come from unknown backgrounds through the local shelters Most have medical or behavioral concerns that we have addressed as well as providing their well care. We were truly their last hope.  The adoption process may seem time consuming, but we wish to maximize an animal's chance for a successful, permanent adoption. 

Adopting a companion pet is a major consideration and responsible pet ownership demands a considerable commitment. All we ask in return is that you love and care for this pet for its lifetime and make a donation that will allow us to help the next “friend” in need.  Thank you for your interest in our animals
