ATTENTION:  All prospective adopters will have to meet certain criteria and be approved for adoption of a pet.  When you apply for adoption we will check out your facilities for keeping a pet.  If you live out in the county, we will have the Sheriff's Dept. check your facility.  We are doing this in all cases in an effort to make sure all pets are going to a good home.

 We have dogs coming in daily!
