Our Adoption Program

One of the most important aspects of Circle of Friends Animal Shelter is our adoption program. The pets sheltered at our facility need a second chance. They are not second-hand, second-best, discounted or free. They are invaluable as loyal companions and beloved friends who deserve our respect and devotion. Our goal is to place each of our pets in permanent, loving homes.
