I found a pet I’m interested in, what do I do?

  • Note the information on the individual animal's page including the ID number, kennel, tag, and bring it with you to the shelter.
  • If your choice is available, the greeter will give you an application (if needed) and instructions.
  • If your first choice is taken, look around. We have plenty of pets waiting for adoption!
