Briggs Current Schedule - Briggs Animal Adoption Center

The BAAC is currently open on Saturdays and Sundays between the hours of 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. for tours.

For the safety of staff and the public, face masks are required when entering the building.

We are also currently showing animals for adoption by appointment, Wednesday through Sunday, to applicants who complete and submit an online adoption application or during our open hours. 

If you submit an application online, one of our adoption counselors will contact you via email and/or telephone to go over the application with you, answer any questions you may have about the animal(s) and then schedule an appointment with you to visit. Please bear with us if we do not get back to you the same day you submit an application. We have limited staff and with our schedule Wednesday through Sunday, we can get inundated with applications, especially with puppies. If you have not heard from us after 24 hours, give us a call at 304-724-6558 or send an email to mentioning when you submitted an application.

The guidelines we have will still apply.  All household occupants will need to come visit with the animal(s) they are interested in meeting.  When there are very young children in the home, we require additional appointments/visits.  If you are applying to adopt a dog and you already have a dog in your home, we will set up a second appointment so the dogs can meet in order for us all to view their interaction and compatibility.

To view and complete an application, go to our Adoption Application page.

If you call us at 304-724-6558, you may receive a voicemail message. If so, please leave a message with your name, email, telephone number and the name(s) of the animal(s) you are interested in meeting. An Adoption Counselor will return your call as soon as possible. As mentioned above, you can also email the adoption department with any questions at

Please note that we do not have staff available on Mondays and Tuesdays to return calls.

Thank you for your cooperation and be well!
