The HES is pleased to offer a variety of companion animals for adoption
to qualifying families and individuals. Adopting an animal that is
otherwise homeless is a tremendous opportunity to find a friend for
life! We are extremely happy when one of our animals are adopted to a
loving home; not only are we able to see the joy in an animal's face at
the prospect of "going home" but also know that there is space for one
more animal in need! We and your community thank you for saving an
animal through your adoption!
We ask, however, that you take the time
to browse through the following information to consider all aspects of
the adoption process. We offer a list of
questions to ask of yourself before making the final decision to
adopt. We also would like to tell you about the
joys of adopting a mature pet. Finally we ask that
you familiarize yourself with the
actual process of adopting a companion animal through HES!
Oh, and did you want to take a look at some of the pets we have to
offer? Well, that's the most exciting part, isn't it? You
can find many of our adoptable animals listed right here at Petfinder's!
Of course, at the shelter, our friendly staff is always available to
guide you through whatever questions you may have. Thank you for
considering the adoption of one of our animals. There are none
more deserving that those we shelter.

The HES/MBPAC and Petsmart have joined together to create our new
Adopt-A-Cat program. Petsmart is partnering with us to showcase our
adorable cats at their store! Located near the center of
the store, Petsmart has a special area just for you to view and cuddle
our homeless cats, and maybe even take one home! Our thanks to
the supportive staff at Petsmart for giving us this wonderful
opportunity for the animals! Stop in to meet some of our
homeless kitties just for a cuddle or to consider adoption of that
special one for you!
We are sorry, but we do not
ship our pets. We do welcome out of area/state
adoptions, however, you will need to visit our shelter
personally to fill out an adoption contract.
