Animal Services Calendar

  1. MLK Weekend- Couch Crashers

    January 14, 2021 - January 19, 2021

    Couch Crashers is a collaborative program to engage our community to foster, and to give the pets in our Adoption Center a much needed break from kennel life for the weekend. All pets must be rabies vaccinated and spayed/neutered (if age-appropriate), and off their stray hold period in order to be eligible for foster. *Please note that we do not typically send small dogs for Couch Crashers, as they are our most adoptable pets and do not typically need a foster.
