Adoptable pets in foster care

Please note: The pets listed in this album are not located at the shelter at this time; they are in foster care homes.

Foster homes allow our pets to become comfortable in the home environment. An added bonus to adopting from foster care is that our foster parents can offer behavior notes, habits, favorite toys and more that will help your new pet adjust to your home and family lifestyle. 

If you are interested in possibly adopting one of these available pets, we have a very convenient virtual adoption process. Please just scroll down to see how virtual adoptions work!

Animal Services Adoption Policies

We provide adoptable animals to the public for a small fee. We accept cash and local checks as well as Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards.

  • Please be advised that not all animals pictured may be available at the time of your visit.

  • Please be aware that we do not hold animals. All animals are adopted first come, first serve.

  • If you see an animal on this page that you are interested in, please write down the animal identification number AXXXXXX so that we may serve you faster when you get to our facility.

  • We accept cash and local checks as well as Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit and debit cards.

  • All dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and tested for heartworm or FELV/FIV before leaving the facility.

  • If a stray animal is put up for adoption, the owner has three full working days to claim it. If an animal is adopted out then claimed by the original owner, the potential adopter is contacted and given the option of choosing another animal or obtaining a refund.

  • Please see the full stray hold policy here.

  • Refunds are available only

    • if the animal was taken to a licensed veterinarian within 7 days of adoption and

    • if there is a legitimate medical condition that has been documented by the veterinarian, or

    • if the animal adopted was a stray and the owner claims it within the three day hold period.

Refunds can take up to 30 days to process after the animal has been returned.

It is important for adopters to understand that even though we take steps to ensure the health of the animals we make available for adoption, there are no guarantees. Animals can incubate diseases, not yet show symptoms and appear to be healthy. This is one reason we require all newly adopted pets to be taken to a licensed veterinarian within three (3) days of the adoption.
