Visiting Hours

When can I meet with an an adoptable animal?

In an effort to better assist adopters picking up their new best friends, the adoption team cannot guarantee that guests arriving after 6:00pm (on weekdays) or 4:00pm (on weekends) will be able to meet with a pet. We will do our best, however, to accommodate our guests arriving after those times given available staffing and volunteer resources.
