Animal Adoption Center

The Animal Adoption Center is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, dedicated to increasing the number of animals adopted from shelters. we have created a welcoming, quiet, homey environment in a downtown location, housing 8-12 dogs and 12 -14 cats at one time, awaiting their forever homes. For prospective adopters, this more low-key facility can be less overwhelming and less chaotic than a shelter environment. We rescue animals from shelters - both local and regional, often high-kill - temperament test them, spay/neuter them, and fully vaccinate them. The cats run amok in a free-roaming cat room, filled with toys, high places to climb, scratching posts, places to hide, and cozy baskets and napping places.The dogs only stay at the facility during our daytime hours of operation, in between walks about town and on the local trails, and go home every night to foster homes. Everyone who deals with an animal notates their observations. We therefore are quite familiar with our animals which, in turn, takes some of the unknown out of adopting a shelter animal - a big issue for some would-be adopters - again increasing the odds that a person will choose to adopt, rather than buy, their next pet. We also offer a 2 week trial foster period; anyone interested in an animal is welcome to foster for up to 2 weeks to see how the animal settles into their life and family. This has proved very effective in helping prospective adopters decide if this animal is indeed the one for them. A big part of our mission is also education and community involvement.
