Effective September 1, 2021, Lil' Paws Meet and Greet Adoption Events will be cancelled until further notice, due to the increase of COVID-19 in our area.  We will, however,  continue to arrange individual adoptions for our available dogs.  If interested in adopting, please submit an adoption application for review.  Thank you for your continued support and interest.
