Half Off Large Dog Adoptions
This Saturday, October 16, all large dog adoption fees are half off! Bring home a dog 40 lbs or more this Saturday ONLY to get this special discount. Adoptions are still by appointment only, and additional large dog appointments have been added for October 16. Please select a large dog appointment when you book your adoption consultation.
Seniors for Seniors
Our Seniors for Seniors program enables people age 60 and up to adopt pets age 5 and up free of charge, thanks to the generous support of the Pets for the Elderly Foundation.
Of course, most pets at age 5 (like most humans at age 60!) are hardly over the hill; on the contrary, they’re just hitting their stride, and the Seniors for Seniors program—besides offering financial assistance to our more experienced adopters—gives an extra boost to the terrific middle-aged cats and dogs, who are sometimes overlooked by shelter visitors.
Pets for Vets
We offer fee-waived adoptions and vaccines for all active duty and retired military personnel. Adopters must show military ID at time of adoption to qualify.
Our workshops and webinars for animal lovers and pet owners give you the chance to strengthen your bond with your pet and understand peaceful coexistence with wildlife while learning valuable new skills! Dates, times and cost vary.
