We are very excited to welcome potential adopters back to the shelter!

Wednesday: CLOSED for adoptions
Thursday - Friday: 11:00 am - 5:30 pm
Saturday - Sunday: 11:00 am - 4:30 pm

All guests MUST be wearing a face mask at ALL times while visiting our facility. **NO EXCEPTIONS**

All adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis. No animals will be held or reserved.

When arriving at HSEP, you will be able to walk around the outside of the kennels and see what animals we have available for adoption. ONLY Staff and Volunteers are allowed in the kennels.

Once you have found an animal you would like to know better, please see the closest Animal Care Associate help you. To begin the adoption process, you will need to spend a minimum of time getting to know them. Our staff will introduce you to the animal and ask you questions to ensure they are a good fit for your household. If you have any other dogs at home, we will REQUIRE you to bring them in for a meet and greet with any dogs over the age of 16 weeks.

After the meet and greet, and our Animal Care Associates believe the animal will be an excellent addition to your family, you will be able to begin the application and contract to adopt the animal. The process can take up to an hour, depending on how many adoptions we have in front of you.

Adopting a new furry companion is a big decision; our staff is dedicated to ensuring that your family and the animal you are taking home will have the smoothest transition in the new adventure you are about to embark on together.
