|TJO has many dogs and cats available for adoption. Sometimes there are rabbits, ferrets, birds, reptiles, and other small animals also available. Our database is updated hourly with the animals available for adoption at TJO. Search for your new best friend here. There is also a link on the shelter Facebook page; click the ADOPT button!|
|We invite you to TJO to meet our wonderful animals in person. An adoption counselor will work with you to make a perfect match. Please bring human family members along so everyone can meet the animals. If you already have a dog and are looking for a second dog, please bring your dog so the pooches can meet each other. If you own your own home, our adoption counselor will ask for verification (tax bill, mortgage statement). You might want to review your homeowner's insurance policy to be sure it does not restrict coverage for specific dog breeds. If you rent, the adoption counselor will call your landlord to verify that you can have pets; please bring that contact information with you.|
