Plan your next adoption visit to
the Buddy Center
At our Buddy Center, we welcome visits with adoptable cats, dogs, and small mammals through walk-ins and limited appointments. Please note that reserving a time in advance does not mean you are guaranteed to meet with a specific animal.
If you are walking into our Castle Rock shelter, please join our queue when you’re ready to adopt or have identified a pet you want to meet. (Follow the signage in our lobby to join the queue.) On a first-come, first-served basis, you will visit with one of our adoption counselors to find your perfect match!
To help us best serve you, please join the queue at least one hour before we close. Wait times vary depending on the day and time you visit; people who come to the Buddy Center on weekdays typically experience shorter wait times.
Your new best friend is longing to meet you. We look forward to bringing you together today!
