    Pets Available for Adoption

    Information on pets available for adoption is updated every 15 minutes and is no guarantee that a pet will still be available when you arrive.

    If you don't see the type of pet you are looking for, check out local rehoming sites like Adopt-A-Pet

    To browse cats at the shelter:

    We are currently only scheduling appointments to meet with cats. Please fill out the Cat Adoption Survey and you will receive a link to schedule an appointment.

    To browse the dog kennels at the shelter:

    1. Complete a survey here: Dog Survey
    2. Receive an email with a link to schedule a walk-through appointment. (All animals will be available for
      adoption on a first come, first served basis.)
    3. Read your appointment confirmation email for instructions regarding your arrival at PACC and other important information. 
    4. When you arrive you will receive information with how our process works. You'll be able to walk through the shelter on your own. When you are ready to meet with a counselor, we will add you to the list to speak with an adoptions counselor, if time allows.

    We look forward to seeing you!
