- We encourage all adults in the adopting family to visit their new pet prior to adoption.
- For adopters currently renting, be sure to check any policy with regards to pet ownership to avoid landlord concerns.

The vehicle, purchased through generous donations to the Animal Services Trust Fund, has been in operation since 2009. It is 33 feet long and provides comfortable, climate controlled space for approximately 20 animals. The bus includes a visiting room and roll up doors so that animals can be seen from the outside. It can be used for emergency response situations such as large scale animal seizures, rescues or veterinary medical triage.
