Come Prepared

Be sure to review our page Choose The Right Dog For You and make some notes about your needs, living situation and lifestyle, and bring them with you to the shelter so our staff can help you find the perfect dog for your situation!

Interacting With Our Dogs

As you can imagine, we have visitors every day who just want to pet or play with the dogs. We know that their intentions are good, but being relinquished to an animal shelter is a drastic change and a stressful experience for most of our dogs. Even though we make every effort possible to make a dog’s new shelter home welcoming, it is still often a place where dogs will be confined, separated from their previous families, and exposed to more noise due to the close proximity of other dogs. These environmental changes are very stressful for most dogs. Over stimulation from complete strangers can create even more stress and trauma. We are very attentive to keeping stress to a minimum for our dogs so they can adjust to their new environment. 

For this reason, we limit interactions with the dogs to staff, trained volunteers and APPROVED adopters.

Please, for your safety and the well-being of our dogs, DO NOT TOUCH OR PUT FINGERS IN KENNELS!
