All Adoptions Currently on Hold

In light of the current events, we are currently unable to schedule home visits, visits to our canine-inmate facility and adoptions within our foster homes in accordance with the recommendations from the CDC to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This change will be in effect until further notice and we will continue to monitor the situation and confer with experts and our facilities.

We know this is disappointing, but we thank you for your understanding as we work to ensure that our staff, volunteers and community remain healthy as we all navigate through this together. In the meantime, you can still help support the animals currently in our care by shopping at Kroger and AmazonSmile when you stock up on supplies!

We look forward to matching you with your forever friend down the road. 🙂 Please be smart and stay safe, everyone!!
