How do I adopt a pet?
We have many wonderful dogs and cats available at Animal Control. We also get other critters such as rabbits, birds, reptiles, horses, goats, etc. Shelter hours for adoption are M-F 9:00-1:00 and Sat 10:00-1:00.

Prior to adoption we do conduct a background check to verify good pet ownership. We talk with your veterinarian, check our records, and make sure the landlord is on board if you rent.

If the animal you are adopting is not neutered there is a $40.00 spay/neuter deposit redeemable at the veterinarian’s office. If it is a dog greater than 4 months and it does not have a rabies vaccination there is a $10.00 rabies deposit. There are also applicable license fees and an adoption fee of $23.00.
