• Step 1: Visit

    Come to the shelter and visit with the cats/dogs! Find someone you love? Great!

  • Step 2: Application

    Complete an application and consult with an adoption counselor.

  • Step 3: Approval

    Once approved, if you're adopting a canine, you'll need to do a canine interaction if you already have another dog in the household.

  • Step 4: Congrats!

    We'll want to snap a going home picture and then you and your new family member head home!
