Owner Turn-In Dogs:
If you are looking to rehome your own personal dog, we do this on a limited basis. We rarely take the dog into our rescue to foster but rather post on our website and allow you to bring the dog up to our adoption site on the weekends. In essence, you foster the dog until a home is found. Our limited foster homes are reserved for animals that are in the shelter and due to be euthanized.

If you are in a position that does not allow you to foster your dog you would be required to give a $250 donation to cover the expense of boarding your dog until we were able to place the dog.

In order for us to place ANY dog, we require the following:
1. The dog must be spayed/neutered (certificate required)
2. Current on DHLPPC, Bordetella and Rabies vaccines and we require proof as well as the rabies certificate
3. Current vet check
Stray Dog:
You must follow your local animal control ordinance that dictates what you must do to find the dog's owner. Generally that requires keeping the dog 14-30 days, placing a notice at the shelter, free ad in the newspaper and placing fliers in the area the dog was found. You must also have the dog scanned for a microchip.

If you wish to expedite the process you can turn the dog into the shelter, ask for a first hold and retrieve the dog after the legal holding time at the shelter. At that point you would foster the dog until we are able to find the dog a permanent home.

There are no easy solutions for finding homes for animals. We are all volunteers and this is a community effort to make a difference in the lives of animals and people.

If you wish to do either of the above, please email at: If you have a digital picture we will post immediately. We will ask you a series of questions to best place the dog in the appropriate home. We do not place our dogs in "first come, first serve" homes but rather the homes that match the dog best.
Owner Turn-In Cats:
If you are looking to re-home your own personal cat, we do this on a limited basis depending on our space availability. If we choose to re-home your cat we would require the following:

1. Spayed or neutered (certificate required)
2. Current on 4 in 1 with Leukemia shots
3. Proof of Leukemia/AIDS negative test
4. Dewormed

We also require a $75 donation to take in your cat.

If you are looking to turn in a litter of kittens to our rescue you will be required to show proof of spay of the mother and we require a $100 donation. Again, we do this on a very limited basis.
If you wish to pursue the option of relinquishing your own cat or a litter of kittens, please email at:
We do not take in stray cats
