Our kennels are still under construction so all dog adoptions are FREE with a monetary donation of your choice.


  • Yes, we are still open. Our hours are back to normal: 11-5 weekends and 11-7 weekdays. HOWEVER, due to building entry restrictions, there could be a significant wait time. Cut off times are 4pm on weekends and 6pm on weekdays.

  • Follow the instructions on the main doors upon your arrival. If there's no answer, leave a message. PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING WHILE WAITING OUTSIDE!

  • ONLY 5 people will be allowed inside at a time. Each person may be limited to the number of pets they can interact with and interaction time may be shorter than normal.

  • Remember that our adopt-a-pet page updates hourly. However, for popular dogs such as small, pure breeds, and puppies/kittens, someone could be waiting in the parking lot to meet/adopt.
  • Staycations have resumed. Daycations are STILL SUSPENDED.

Due to phase 1 and social distancing restrictions, we will NOT be holding our June SouthPark mall adoption event.
