Please use our online enrollment form if you have an animal you would like to bring in.

We can only enroll animals in our adoption program via the online form that enables us to efficiently access all the information about the animal, your situation and the kind of help that you may need. We will unfortunately not be able to process any requests for enrollment in our adoption program that are not submitted via this form.

Please do not email us requests to enroll an animal.
