Yes. You do not need to complete a questionnaire before visiting. Once you spend time with a pet and decide that you want to adopt, you are then asked to fill out a questionnaire and complete a consultation with an adoption guide. You can also visit with animals even if you don’t plan to adopt.

The adoption process consists of a consultation after you have chosen a pet and filled out our adoption questionnaire. It is same-day adoption and the whole process can take up to two hours.

We will need a photo ID such as a State ID or Driver’s License or passport. If your current address is not listed on your ID, please bring a lease or utility bill to prove your current address.

No, we are unable to hold available pets. The adoption process is first-come, first-served once a pet becomes available.

No, adoptions are same-day. We do not have space to accommodate boarding of adopted pets. 

We offer 15 days of vet care after the adoption if your pet shows signs of being sick during the first two weeks. We also have a free behavior helpline you can call for advice on dealing with behavior issues. Please visit our Post Adoption Services page for more details
