This page is for ACC  Rescue Partners only. If you are NOT a rescue partner and you want to see the animals available for adoption, visit our Adopt-A-Pet page. Any ACC  rescue partner that is already approved/signed up with our facility can come to the shelter and pull any animal(s) in open adoption any time during normal business hours. If you are the head of a rescue and would like to become an approved rescue, keep reading!
