Adopt your new best friend at the Pet Center!

By adopting, you completely change a homeless animal's whole world for the better. You also help to end the homeless pet cycle and create room for another pet in need. Bonus: You get a new best friend. What could be better than that? See 10 Best Reasons to Adopt @

Pets of the Week

Adoptable Dog

Polar (65738)
Hello! I'm Polar! I am formerly a stray now ready to start a new life. At first I was shy, not able to make eye contact or approach anyone but still craving to be around people. Now I've opened up a little more! I can look you in the eye with a smile, wag my whole body with excitement, and if you'll let me I'll sit in your lap and give you a kiss. I haven't been here long but I'm starting to feel a little more like myself every day. Let's grow together.

Adoptable Dog

Gilbert (65527)
Hi! My name is Gilbert! I'm ready to have a new home with you. I get excited meeting new people and wag my tail so hard it wags my whole body! For now, though, I need to be calm and enjoy a quiet lifestyle until it's time to play again. When I get to play, though, I love running around and jumping up to say hi. I'm a happy dog with lots of love and life to look forward to with my new family. Let's enjoy it together!
