We only adopt one dog or puppy per household. In special cases, a bonded pair of dogs may be adopted together. If you are thinking of adopting two dogs we recommend waiting at least one month before adopting a second dog. It's important to give the first dog sufficient time to adjust to his new home and family. Once he is comfortable at home, and you have gotten to know his/her personality we will be happy to assist you in choosing a second pet.
Adopters are able to bring home a maximum of two cats at a time. These can be two adult cats, two kittens or a combination. Some cats in our shelter are considered to be bonded pairs, and must be adopted together. It is easiest to see the pairs in action by visiting them in our adoption center.
