Please note:

  • All dogs and cats in the adoptive home must be up-to-date on state mandated vaccinations and current on their basic veterinary care.  Applicants will be denied if the current pets do not have their rabies vaccines at time of reference checks unless there are special circumstances that are approved by their veterinarian.
  • No pit bull type dog/bully breed mixes will be adopted out-of-state and an in-person home visit is required. Such breeds include, but are not limited to American Staffordshire Terrier, Cane Corso, American Bulldog, and Dogo Argentino.  These dogs will not be adopted into breed restricted areas.
  • We do not accept checks.
