You save an animals life.
All animals at shelters are in need of a second chance. They have been lost, given up or abandoned. They are all unwanted and helpless. You will be giving them a new life in a loving home.

You help break the cycle of pet overpopulation.
There are not enough homes for all the animals that are born every year. Adopting from a shelter helps weaken the pet overpopulation cycle. Each year millions of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are euthanized because there are simply not enough homes for them.

You take advantage of adopting an adult animal.
Adult pets are often already housetrained and some can even do basic commands. You won’t have to deal with the “puppy phase” or the “kitten phase” . You will be able to see the personality of the adult animal and won’t have to wait to see what you get.

You choose from a great selection of animals.
Shelter offers a variety that you won’t find anywhere else. We have specific breeds and also the greatest mutts you’ll ever find.

You adopt a pet who has received good care.
All animals that come to the shelter are admitted by experienced staff. They are given vaccinations upon arrival and go through a behavior screening process

You inspire others to adopt.
When your people ask where you got your amazing pet, you can tell them “at the shelter.” Your adoption may encourage others to do the same.
