Give a shelter animal their next big break during a PAWDITION!

September 15, 2023

Similar to foster to adopt, you can now take home an animal with an approved application to see if it is a good fit!


Adopting a pet and providing a furever home is a big commitment! Shelter pets are so appreciative of a loving home and want nothing more than a family to call their own.

We understand that not all pets are people are a perfect match. That is why we are now offering a PAWDITION. With an approved adoption application, you can take home the pet of your choice and make sure you, your family, and the pet are a good match. If the perfect match isn't made, bring the pet back to the shelter and try another pet!

We are adding double digits of adoptable pets each day! Please help give these adoptable animals a chance at the life they are longing for. You will be rewarded with lots of love!

Please check our pet listings. As we work to get the huge influx of pets updated on our website, please also visit and search with zip code 62526.
