Dogs and cats which remain unclaimed are seen by a veterinarian, bathed and groomed, vaccinated, wormed, micro-chipped, and neutered/spayed, in addition to receiving any other needed medical treatment. For this reason, the animals put up for adoption are healthy and have no serious behavior problems.
The aim of our adoption policy is to place our animals in the most compatible situations possible. To ensure the most appropriate match, the adoption procedure requires an application and a waiting period. The Adoption Committee meets semi-weekly on Wednesday and Saturday to review applications and decide on the most suitable placement, which results in the greatest chance of a permanent, rewarding and peaceful existence between animal and owner. This policy has kept our return rates at 5-10%, while the national average at other shelters is close to 50%.
It is our decision and choice to maintain certain criteria and policies for animal adoptions. These policies are for the protection of the animals in our care, as well as those of the adopters. We select the home and environment best suiting the animal's requirements and person adopting.
Our plan yard is available for visitation and introducing other dogs from 11am to 2pm daily. The dogs may be visited in the yard only after they have been examined by the veterinarian. All large breed dogs require a secure fenced yard. We encourage all household members - including other dogs - to meet the prospective pet. We only adopt locally.
