Adopt a Pet Day
Come on over and join our Volunteers in a meet and greet with some of our adorable and friendly Adoptable Pets!
Did you know 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 8 to 12 million dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are euthanized because there are simply not enough homes for them.
