Adoption Center

The Irma Baker Lyons Adoption Center was built in 2011, and has the ability to house up to 95 dogs and 175 cats. Up until our furry residents find loving homes, staff and volunteers provide them with quality care and enrichment daily.

The adoption site has three outdoor play yards, and walking trails to meet with and interact with available dogs. Our available cats reside in the “Cat Condos” or in one of the four group housing rooms. Two indoor meet and greet rooms are also available for meeting animals!

How to Adopt

    1. Do a meet and greet
      • Animals listed as “Available” are able to be met with onsite. Staff is also able to assist with meet and greets between potential pets and resident pets!
    2. Fill out an application
      • This helps us get to know you better and to ensure that the adoption is the best fit for both you and the animal.
    3. Start the adoption process
      • Staff will go over our adoption contract, medical records, and microchip details for your newly adopted pet. Please be sure to bring your photo ID!

*For puppies and kittens that are not of age to be spayed/neutered, there is a refundable $100 deposit that must be paid. Our friendly staff will help set up an appointment to get your pet spayed/neutered. Once your pet has been spayed/neutered by your vet or our preferred clinic, we will refund your deposit!
