 Adopt-a-Pet is an all-volunteer dog shelter serving Mason County that has been in operation for 41 years. We are an energetic team dedicated to saving the lives of unwanted, abandoned and abused dogs. Our goal is to place all our dogs in safe & loving homes. As a 501(c) 3, non-profit organization, we rely on adoption fees, donations, grants, fundraisers, and estate bequests to continue our good work. It takes a village to save a dog and we are grateful for the support of the community. Our History >

We all care about the health of our 2-legged caregivers and the community at large, so as a precaution we are temporarily suspending our public open hours. We are still taking email inquiries and applications and will be in touch with you as soon as we are able.  We appreciate everyone's understanding during this difficult time.  Stay well!
