To meet any of our adoptable animals, please visit our shelter during our Open Adoption Hours- Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 11 am-4 pm. No appointments taken. Walk in only.
All of our pups and kitties have a biography (below their photos) that describes their unique personality. If you have a specific question about temperment, etc, it is best to speak with our Adoption Team when you come to meet the animal. If you need further assistance during our closed hours, please call 941-361-1071 and leave a message with your contact information and we will return your call. For an even faster reply, please email us at
