Adoption Considerations

  • Prepare enough time for your visit. Adopters should expect that it may be up to two (2) hours at the shelter to process an adoption, including meeting pets, an adoption consultation, and waiting periods. Wait times may be significantly longer on weekends.
  • Our adoption process, including adoption counseling, will end at 3:30 pm. We encourage you to show up as early as possible. Adopters may continue to browse adoptable pets at the shelter, but the queue for new adoption counseling sessions will close, and new adoptions may not be processed.
