Walk-ins Are Welcome…Appointments are Appreciated! 

Prospective adopters may walk-in and see the shelter pets, but those with appointments will take priority. Additionally, those who walk-in without an appointment will not be able to adopt on the same day. Also, we can only do dog-to-dog introductions by appointment. Thank you for understanding!
