Our adoption process has changed. Over the last few months, we have been evaluating how we go about adopting out animals and some things have changed. Our lobby is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. Visits to our open cattery are welcome between 10:00 am and 3:30 pm. If you choose one of our cats we will have you fill out an adoption application. This application is then approved by a member of management after we have checked you out through the Sheriff’s department website and Clerk.org. Many of our adopters are frequent visitors to our facility or repeat adopters. We thank you!
Our process for dogs has changed dramatically. We no longer allow visitors into the kennel area. Instead, we take some time and talk to you about your home, your other pets, your family and what you are looking for in a dog. There are several reasons for this change. Visitors other than employees stress out the dogs and they do not reflect their real personalities. If you meet them outside of the kennel area they are very different. Our dog caretakers know their dogs, and they know if they like cats, kids, etc. One of our employees actually tests our dogs with kids with her own child. We will not pair you with a dog that we feel will not work for you and your family. If we do not know you we will also check you out with the same resources we use for the cats.
We have taken this action to ensure that our dogs go into safe and loving homes. We have received some complaints about our new process and felt we should explain it and hope the public understands that our ONLY concern is the animals. That is why we are here. We will continue to do what we think is best for our pets.
We thank you for your understanding and we thank all of our supporters, volunteers and our employees who work so hard each day.
