Adoption Process

Choosing a Pet, the Steps

  • Browse available animals online- links below.
  • Fill out an adoption application for the animal you are interested in adopting. All animals will be adopted based on a first come, first served basis. Please note there is a different application per animal type.  
  • A member of our team will reach out to you to set up a virtual adoption counseling appointment.
  • Once you are approved to adopt, we will schedule an appointment to come to the shelter. 

Adoption Requirements

  • If you are interested in adopting a dog, the homeowner or person on the lease must visit the dog prior to adoption. 
  • Shelter dogs must also visit with all dogs that are already in the home.
  • No one under 18 years of age may adopt an animal. Valid identification is required.
  • Adoption fee is payable at the time of adoption, all fees are non-refundable.
  • If the animal has not yet been spayed or neutered, it will be scheduled for the next available surgery date and released once it has recovered. 
  • Landlord approval is required in writing at the time of adoption for all dogs. Homeowners must provide proof of home ownership (property tax or mortgage statement).
