While you are welcome to bring your dog to pickup, please know that they are usually a very stressful situation for the dogs in our care and for your current pet.  There’s lots of movement and noise which can sometimes agitate the available dogs in their crates.

We suggest that when adding a new member to your pack that you follow these guidelines.

  1. Introduce the dogs on neutral ground away from stress and distraction.  A green space, dog park, or other such place that isn’t a place your current dog frequents.
  2. Before introduction, make sure both dogs have had plenty of exercise.
  3. Allow the dogs to meet on leash first.
