Adoption information

Interested in adopting a dog?

Pets can be great stress relievers and companions, but there are several important questions to consider before you make the decision to adopt:

  • Are you able to provide for a pet financially?
    Do you have the financial means to provide food, licensing, and veterinary care?
  • Are you prepared for the long-term commitment?
    You might be home to care for all your pets’ needs now, but will this still be the case if and when the situation changes?
  • Are you physically able to provide for a pet?
    Do you have the ability to give your dog the physical activity it needs? Do you have a yard or nearby park where you can provide exercise for your pet?

If you have answered yes to all these questions, your next step is to find a pet that’s right for you and your family.

If you would like to adopt a dog from Animal Services, view adoptable pets online or on our social media pages:

Visit Animal Services at 1057 Logan Ave. to express interest in a specific dog.

If an adoptable dog indicates “in foster” online, contact 311 to arrange a viewing.
