Programs and Services
Surrendering a Pet
Since we're a no-kill shelter, our ability to accept a pet is determined by how much hospital space we have at that time. Learn more about our intake procedures click here.
From caring for dogs & cats to providing support at off-site events, volunteers of all ages make a real difference at ADL. Families, retirees, teens, social groups – everyone is welcome! Learn more on ways you can volunteer your time.
Spay and Neuter Services
Besides controlling the pet population, spay/neuter is one of the easiest ways to ensure that your pet has a healthy, happy, and longer life. Our spay and neuter services are available to the public by appointment only. For the cost, appointments, and other resources, visit this link.
