Adopting A Dog Is A Lifetime Commitment

Welcoming a dog into your family is a big decision, but chances are good that your life will be better than ever with the companionship of your new best friend.

We make an emotional commitment to each dog in our care. We have an obligation to ensure that the new relationship between your family and your new companion will thrive for a lifetime. We take the adoption process very seriously. We strive to ensure that each dog finds the proper family and that each family finds a dog that will match their lifestyle. For an adoption to be successful, you must truly understand the level of care and commitment required for a successful adoption.

To help you understand the obligations of responsible dog ownership, we have prepared information for you about the costs of owning a dog, determining if you are ready for a dog, choosing the right dog for your lifestyle, what to expect when you visit the shelter and the dog adoption process and fees.
