Please be aware of the following information:

  • If there are 2 or more parties at the shelter at the same time for the same dog starting at 11am, then a drawing will take place. The first party will interact first with first option to adopt. We encourage the other parties to stick around in case the first party does not want to adopt; we also encourage them to take a look at the other animals available for adoption while they are here.
  • If a party comes to adopt an animal at any time we are open, and a second party shows up after the first party arrived to adopt the same animal, the first party gets first right to interact and adopt.
  • In the best interest of assisting everyone before closing time, we will be stopping interactions 20 minutes before closing every day. If you wish to interact with any of our adoptable pets, please get to the shelter no later than 30 minutes prior to closing so we can assist you with interaction and completing adoption paperwork.
