Adopt

Coming Soon most often means an animal is recovering from their spay/neuter surgery and will likely be available the following day. “On Deck” means an animal isn't able to leave the shelter with a new family just yet, but you can still come in to meet them. Looking for breed names? Click here to learn why WHS stopped labeling dog breeds in 2016!
