Before any of our animals are moved into the adoption building, they are seen by our shelter veterinarian. He will insure that, to the best of his knowledge, these animals are healthy enough to begin their search for their new homes. In addition all dogs, cats, and rabbits are spayed or neutered before they can be made available for adoption. Below are our soon-to-be-adoptable animals. They cannot be seen before they are made adoptable. New animals come into adoptions on Monday and Thursday mornings at 9am when we open. We adopt out on a first come, first serve basis based on who is at the front door waiting for them. 


Some of these animals may also be available for medical foster! To learn more about medical fostering, call the shelter at 941-792-2863!
