+Summer Yearego Hi Summer! Thank you for choosing to adopt! While we are not affiliated with your local shelter/humane society (they all operate independently) we do have many ways to connect families looking to adopt with pets looking for love! Check them out here: http://www.humanesociety.org/animal_community/resources/tips/find_local_animal_shelter.html
