How to Adopt
Deciding to bring a pet into your home means a major change in lifestyle. Pet adoption should be a thoroughly considered decision and not a spur of the moment idea, especially considering this pet will be a part of your family for as long as the next 10 to 20 years. Therefore, it is imperative to consider the "for better and for worse" aspects of adoption before making any decisions.

Adopt a Cat
Strong and independent or cuddly and playful, no matter your preference in feline fellowship, we have the cat to suit you. Each cat we take in has a unique personality and special needs. We encourage everyone to stop in and visit with our pets to see which one(s) is ideal for your lifestyle.

Adopt Other Animals
If you are considering adopting a pet other than a dog or cat, think about what role you want a companion to take in your life. Are you looking for an animal to cuddle and show affection to or do you want an independent sidekick that keeps its own schedule? No matter what animal you decide to adopt, be certain you are ready to handle all the responsibilities that come with it. And remember, we are always receiving new animals into the humane association so be sure to check back often for your next pet.

Volunteering & Fostering
You don't need to be an animal expert to help improve the lives of animals in our community. As a non-profit organization, much of what we do is made possible by the help of volunteers. From playing with pets in our shelter and organizing outreach program to fostering abused or neglected pets, we are always on the lookout for more volunteers.
