Adoption Events

Our skilled team is here to assist you throughout the adoption process as you find a new best friend. During your visit, we will share information about the animal’s health, behavior, and the post-adoption resources we offer. Adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis. The availability of particular animals cannot be guaranteed.

Here is a look at where you’ll be able to find our mobile adoption team (dates and locations are subject to change), as well as any sponsored adoption days or other types of adoption events.
