Whether you are looking for a young puppy or kitten, a mature dog or a friendly older cat, a purebred or a mixed breed, a local animal shelter is a great place to start. They can help you decide which pet is right for you, talk to you about how to fit your pet into your family, and most will assist in spaying and neutering. All adoptions must be carried out in accordance with the shelter's guidelines and policies which are available when you contact them. Below are some local animal shelters and rescue groups that can help you find your perfect match.
