We Don’t Sell Pets; We Adopt Them into Responsible and Loving Homes. 

We're dedicated to finding lasting forever homes for the unclaimed and homeless pets in our care. We want each of these animals’ adoptive homes to be safe, loving, and permanent! We also strive to find the best match for our adopters. Assuring a good fit between an animal and their new family is our number one priority.  We want both the animals and their new families to be safe and happy. Our adoption policies reflect this commitment.


Thank you for considering pet adoption! HSoP finds forever homes for hundreds of homeless animals in our community each year.  Every animal deserves to know love, stability, comfort, and family. Equally, you deserve to know the joy and unconditional love that comes with a rescued dog, cat, or critter.

We strive to learn as much as we can about each animal under our care. HSoP staff and volunteers focus on learning as much as they can about each pet by observing their behaviors, habits, training, history, temperament, and personality.

Our staff offer adoption counseling for potential adopters, along with follow-up behavior counseling as needed following adoption. Each adoption begins with a seven day “foster period” and health guarantee. This foster period allows time for the adopted pet to settle in and become acquainted with their new family, while giving the family time to observe the pet and raise any concerns to shelter staff. Our adoption fees are far less than the total cost of preventative care that each pet adopted from HSoP receives prior to their adoption. Take a look below for more information about the preventative care provided to each pet who finds a home through HSoP:
