How A.D.O.P.T. Helps

A.D.O.P.T. Pet Shelter has placed over 30,000 dogs and cats into permanent and loving homes since its inception in 1989. See a list of available animals here.

A.D.O.P.T. has spayed and neutered over 10,000 shelter animals since 2009 when we opened our spay/neuter clinic. Read more about our clinic here.

A.D.O.P.T.’s Blessed Bonds and community outreach programs have helped 1000’s of families and their pets by giving them the support they need to prevent their beloved pet from entering the shelter system. More information can be found on our Crisis Assistance page. 

We’d like to give a heartfelt thank you to all of our amazing volunteers.  You’re the reason we can help so many homeless animals and continue our mission.  If you’re interested in volunteering check out all the details here.  Thank You!
