Woman Dog Services

services

If you want to adopt a pet, need help caring for your pet, or want to learn more about the humane treatment of animals, we have services that can help you in every season of your pet's life.

adoption center

Our shelter provides a safe haven to animals for as long as it takes for them to find a permanent home. Seeing an animal find a loving family is what really gets our tails wagging. In light of our desire to promote adoptions as one of our primary pet services, our animal shelter is open 7 days every week (Mon–Fri 11–6 and Sat–Sun 11–5). If you’re interested in adopting a pet, pay us a visit! We also strongly encourage you and your family to spend some time at our animal shelter interacting with our pets to make sure you find one that is a good long-term match for your lifestyle.

pet food bank

Not every family with a pet is always able to provide for all its needs. That’s why many of our other pet services center around equipping low-income families with donated pet food and inexpensive veterinary services. We’re proud to say that each year, our pet food bank is able to distribute more than 20,000 pounds of donated pet food into the community.

outreach

We work in conjunction with local businesses to host hundreds of off-site educational and adoption events to find homes and further ensure the adoptions of our animals. Through these events, we increase the community awareness of our programs and pet services, and educate the public on the need to spay and neuter. Classroom visits are another way that we reach out to the community. If you’d like us to come speak to your students, we’re available to give presentations on a variety of shelter-related topics.

shelter tours

You can also learn more about us and our animals by taking a tour of the shelter. Visitors five years and older are invited to an educational presentation and tour of our facility. Tour groups must consist of five or more people. Tours are given between 10 am – 4 pm, Monday through Friday. Weekend tours are available on a limited basis and must be booked well in advance. Tour length is between 45 min – 1 hour, depending on the age of the group.
