We are not currently hosting adopting events due to COVID-19 and stay at home orders. Therefore, we are not taking adoption applications at this time. We will open our application once we resume adoption events. Please be mindful that adopting any animal while you are home now may not be the best of time. You need to be sure that you will continue to have time to care for the animal once you resume normal activities.
