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!
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!
This helps us get to know you better and to ensure that the adoption is the best fit for both you and the animal. To fill out our Adoption Application, click here.
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!
The adoption fee covers all age appropriate vaccinations and blood work, spay/neuter costs, and microchipping. With every adoption you get a free sample bag of food, and a free brief health exam with a local vet!
Leashes, collars, harnesses, and cardboard carriers are available for purchase to ensure your pet makes it home safe and sound!

What does it mean if I sponsor an animal?
When you sponsor an animal, your donation contributes to our operations fund so we can provide medical care, spay/neuter, food and love to our animals. A post will be made to our Facebook page to give this animal some extra recognition to potential adopters!

Why are all of your dogs listed as a "Mixed Breed"?
The vast majority of dogs who enter shelters are mixed-breed animals - which actually means they are not any breed. A dog's appearance is largely controlled by a small number of genes - only about 2%. In a study done by the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, dog experts were only able to correctly identify the breed of an animal one in four times. The experts in this study included veterinarians, breeders, and trainers.
We want visitors to see each dogs' individual personality and charm that is not defined by a specific label. Just like people, every dog is unique and special in their own way!
Our knowledgeable staff is here to help you find your perfect companion.
