It is our goal to find a home for every animal in need of one whether they are at risk of abandonment, cruelty, neglect, elderly, sick, or in need of medical attention.

The animals at TAHS came to the shelter in one of three ways:
  • owner surrendered
  • transferred from another agency
  • through our Cruelty Department

Each animal receives a medical exam, age-appropriate vaccines, a detailed behavior assessment, a microchip, and spay/neuter surgery if necessary before they are available for adoption.

Adoption Process

Adopting a new best friend is an exciting and fulfilling experience. When you arrive at the shelter, you will be greeted by a smiling face. The staff member or volunteer will invite you to take a look around and meet the animals. Our staff and volunteers are happy to answer any questions about our available animals based on the information we have been provided (which can sometimes be limited.)

Once you decide on an animal, you will meet with one of the adoption counselors to go over the adoption contract, your pet's medical history, and answer any questions you may have. After completing your adoption, you'll take your first family photo with your new addition before taking your new pet home!
