Holiday Adoption Special

To help our pets get "home for the holidays" we are offering half price adoptions through December 31, 2017. For $50.00 you can pick out your new furever friend and get to spend that extra holiday home time getting to know them. All adoptions include spay/neuter, microchip, rabies vaccination, City registration, deworming, and core vaccines and as an added bonus we’ll chip in limitless tail wags, warm cuddle buddies, and impossible to resist puppy dog eyes for absolutely no additional charge!

Holiday Hours

We will be closed November 23 - 25 for the Thanksgiving Holiday. The center will reopen at 10 a.m. on Monday.
