Adoption Center For Dog Adopters & Dog Owners

Are you seeking a trusted friend? An exercise buddy? More meaning in life?

Consider enriching your world with a dog. Dog owners have different reasons for adding a furry family member, but they all enjoy a daily dose of love, loyalty and laughs.

If you’ve already decided that a dog is right for you, only one question remains: Where will you find the perfect canine companion?

Adopting from a local animal shelter or rescue group is your best option. Here’s why:

  • You’ll be giving a dog a second chance — or even saving a life.
  • An estimated 3.7 million animals are euthanized in animal shelters every year, and you’ll be doing your part to address the tragic problem of pet overpopulation.
  • Shelters and rescue groups offer a wide variety of purebreds, mixed breeds, and big and little dogs, making it easy to find the perfect dog for you.
