Adopting a new dog or cat into your home can be an exciting and rewarding experience. We encourage our clients to investigate adopting a pet from shelters and rescue facilities, as there are always many great dogs and cats in need of good homes. Below we have listed several adoption facilities, some of which are local shelters, others of which are on-line services. These are just a few of many such services available. Once you have made the decision to adopt a pet, let us know so we can schedule a post-adoption check-up for your new dog or cat.
