I'm Interested in Adoption!
This is not an adoption application. Use this form to indicate your interest in adopting one of our pets. Please note that completing this form does not guarantee adoption and there are additional steps you must take. See below for more information.
- Review our animals on the Adopt page.
- Complete this form to indicate your interest in adopting.
- Review your email for adoption requirements.
- Visit the shelter during business hours for a supervised meet and greet.
- Meet with an adoption counselor to get more information and complete your application.
- Your application will be reviewed by our staff.
- An adoption counselor will guide you through any additional requirements.
- The time to consider what type of pet is most appropriate, and how much you can afford to pay for the animal’s care, is before you adopt.
- Those considering adopting a pet should first price out the total cost of having that pet per year. In addition to food, owners are required to provide adequate shelter, water, and veterinary care (annual visits, vaccinations, flea treatments, etc.).
- Don’t forget to factor in the costs of a license and other necessities such as a collar, leash, food and water bowls, identification tags, and boarding when the family goes on vacation.
- If your home is not equipped with a suitable fence and shelter, those are additional costs that should be factored into the cost of pet ownership.
- If you have other animals in your home, how will they react to a new pet in the house?
- Included with every dog adoption will be the first DHPP shot of the series (if age allows), a rabies vaccine (if age allows), a wellness check good for up to three days from participating veterinarians, implanting an identification microchip (registration extra), spay or neuter surgery, if necessary, as well as a collar, ID tag, and a leash.
- For dog adoptions, a yard check will be performed prior to adoption. In addition to adequate fencing and shelter, those wishing to adopt a pet must provide either proof of ownership of the residence or a rental agreement for that address indicating that pets are allowed.
- Cat adoptions will include the first FVRCP shot in the series, a leukemia test (if age allows), rabies vaccine (if age allows), a medical exam good for up to three days from participating veterinarians, deworming, implanting an identification microchip (registration extra), spay or neuter surgery if necessary as well as a safety collar, ID tag, and a cardboard carrier.
