Are there special adoption considerations if I already have another animal?

After approval to adopt, you’ll need to bring your current dog(s) to the shelter to meet the dog you’re planning to adopt to ensure a good match for your family. For your convenience we’ll work with you to hold the animal until you return to the shelter later that day.

Can I return an adopted animal?

Yes. We try our best to ensure a good adoption match but recognize it isn’t always a good fit. A full refund of the adoption fee will be given if the animal is returned within 72 hours of adoption. The adoption fee for an animal returned within 30 days can be applied to the adoption of a different animal, with an approved application. We always welcome our animals back, and in fact require adopters to return animals to the shelter if they’re unable to keep them.
