Adopting a Dog:

discovering man's best friend

It's no secret that having a canine comrade can bring immeasurable amounts of love and joy to your life. Now that you have decided to bring a four-legged friend into your home, what type of dog is right for you? Make sure you consider all the possibilities before selecting a pet that will be with you for a lifetime. And remember, we are always getting new dogs into the shelter; so check back often for your perfect match.

For dogs: Please be aware that because of the way a dog looks it may be perceived as a certain "type". We want to alert you that some communities, landlords, management companies, and insurance agencies have size and breed restrictions, limit on number of pets, and/or require pet deposits or additional fees. Before adopting, we encourage all adopters to know what restrictions may apply to you.
