Please note:

🔘 Although adoption fees will be waived, county license fees still apply.

🔘 No appointments will be needed for adoptions, as this event will be first-come, first-served. Our team will let adopters into the shelter as space allows.

🔘 Because it will be first-come, first-served, we cannot guarantee which animals will be available when you arrive. We are also not accepting holds on any ready-to-go animals.

🔘 If you need to make an appointment for other services besides adoption, your wait time may be longer than usual.
