Impounded pets require space which results in adoptable pets being euthanized. If you have lost a pet, report it immediately, day or night and weekends. You can help save a life by contacting us and picking up your impounded pet!
Pets needing homes can be found on Petfinder.
Do not adopt a puppy or dog just because it is cute. Read up on the different breeds and their requirements to better help you in finding the right dog for your household.
