    Things to Consider When Adopting

    • If you have other pets at home, please use these tips to introduce your new pet into the family.  You are welcome to request a meet and greet to bring your dog/s to the shelter to meet the dog you are interested in adopting.
    • If you rent or lease, please consider that landlords and rental units may have restrictions for pets.  You may want to confirm these policies prior to adopting.
    • You are welcome to bring any family member to the shelter to meet the pet you are interested in adopting.
    • Some of our adoptable pets may have special needs.  These will be discussed with you during the adoption process.
