We are passionate about animals, our shelter is dedicated to rehoming stray and surrendered animals.
Are you ready to welcome a rescue animal into your life? The journey to finding your new fur-ever friend begins right here. Our adoption process is designed to match you with the perfect companion.
Look at our animal profiles online, if any animals interest you, complete and submit your pre-registration.
Once your pre-registration is received, one of our staff members will send you an animal adoption survey to complete.
If you’re a good match for the animal and vice versa, we will arrange a no-obligation meet and greet for you. After this introduction, we give you time to think about it and let us know your feelings the next day.
We can offer a 4-week trial and give assistance and guidance during that time, should you have any settling-in issues. If the adoption doesn’t work out, we will take your rescue animal back for a full refund within those 4 weeks.
Complete the pre-registration form and click the submit button.
We’ve been reuniting animals with their new families since 2017. Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers are passionate about all creatures great and small, and we work with the community to support the cause of animal welfare for domestic pets and native wildlife.Our Story
