Adoption Overview

What to expect when adopting at the League

As of 5/1/20, our shelter is open. Adoptions are conducted by appointment only!

Choosing Your Next Companion

The process of choosing a family’s next companion animal is not something that should be rushed or taken lightly. Our goal is to find all of the animals in our care their forever homes.

Our trained adoption counselors will use their skills and knowledge of the shelter animals to match you and your family with an appropriate cat or dog for your home and lifestyle. For dogs, we encourage you and your family to spend time in our adoption rooms with the animal of your choosing so that you can get to know a little more about their personality and energy level. Our cat rooms will give you ample opportunity to hang out with the felines to find just the right one.

If you need more time to consider your options, we offer a courtesy one-day hold. During that period, the animal will be held for you. We do ask that you notify us of your decision as soon as you possibly can. Remember, while an animal is on hold they could miss another chance for adoption.

The League shelters approximately 80 cats and 40 dogs at any given time. It may take several hours or even several visits to make a final adoption decision. At minimum, a cat adoption will take around an hour, and a dog adoption may require an hour and a half of your time. Please plan your visit accordingly.  Our adoption counselors will advise whether a dog introduction is required based on the specific dog you are interested in adopting.

If you rent, it is our policy to check with your landlord to determine the acceptability of your choice. Please bring along your landlord’s name and phone number.

Please note that the League has the right to refuse any adoption.

We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express as methods of payment for the adoption fees.
