REASONS TO ADOPT
- Save A Life * You are helping to save a life by providing a
forever home for a homeless animal rather than creating a market for
- Offer Animals New Hope * Many pets are victims of
circumstance - moving, allergies, lack of forethought - and
deserve a new home. These animals bring unconditional love and
companionship. Adopters are heroes in the battle against pet
overpopulation - and to their new pet. Be a hero!
- Variety * Animal shelters have it all - from purebreds to the
most unique crossbreeds. Don't be limited by looking or a specific
breed; crossbreeds can have the best traits from a variety of
- Animal Personalities * Our knowledge of the animal's
characteristics, activity level, needs, traits and care requirements
allow for excellent family matches and placement.
- Experienced Animals * We don't just have puppies and kittens,
we also have many experienced animals. With older pets, there is little
guesswork - what you see is what you get - which helps when
looking for a compatible pet. Sometimes it can be difficult to form a
bond with younger dogs, as they are more prone to be feisty and
independent. Most of the dogs from shelters have been denied the warmth
that comes from a loving family, so they are more prone to form an
instant bond with those that show them a little caring.
- Knowledgeable Staff / Volunteers * Our goal is to help you
decide on the pet that's right for you, your family and your lifestyle
so our pets find life-long homes.
- Health Care * Vaccinations, sterilizations, identification
and more, are all included in the adoption fee.
- Support * After the adoption, we are happy to answer
questions and/or refer you to a trainer who can provide assistance.

"I Rescued a Human Today"
Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering
apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had
to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my
past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a
difference in someone's life. She got down on her knees and made little
kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against
the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was
desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my
paw to assure her that all would be well.
Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly
jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to
always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see
that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she
came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the
corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.
