    We try our best to place the animals in a forever home. If we feel your application is unfit in any way, we have the right to decline you without further reasoning. Some pets have multiple applications on them. We do our best to choose the home that would be the best fit for that specific pet. 

    The approval process typically takes 24/72 hours. In some cases this may be longer. 

    If you listed vet information, please contact your vet's office and let them know the animal shelter will be calling them. You must give permission to the vet's office to release your pet's information to the shelter. 

    If you are a renter, please let your landlord know the animal shelter will be calling in order to confirm pets are allowed at the property. A current signed lease stating pets are allowed is also acceptable.

    If incorrect or misleading information is provided, you will not be considered for the animal you are applying for or any other animal at this facility at any time.


    By clicking submit you certify that the information supplied on this application is true and confirm your acceptance of all terms and conditions stated in this application.
