So you’re thinking about adopting. The very first step is to make sure that your housing allows you to have a dog. Once you get the good news, head over to our website at and check out the adorable faces available for adoption!

It is important to remember that owning a pet is a lot of responsibility and they will require your time, attention and affection.

When you adopt from Adopt-A-Dog, you can be comforted with the fact that we will be with you every step of the way. If your pet needs training down the road, we will provide you with free training from our Enrichment and Behavior Coordinator. You can also be assured that the pet you adopt is fully vaccinated, microchipped and spayed/neutered.
