Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We show animals from 1:00pm to 5:00pm on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Appointments can sometimes be made to see animals at other times by calling in advance to make arrangements. If you reach the answering machine when telephoning the shelter, please leave a message and a member of the shelter staff will return your call as soon as possible.
Other sites that may be visited for information about our adoptable animals are www.pvchs.petfinder.com and our web site www.pvchs.cfsites.org.
All Dog/Puppy adoptions include vaccines, spay/neuter, microchip, adopter bag of food and treats, adoption counseling by phone or email, and a free health exam or first office call at a (local) participating veterinarian. All Cat/Kitten adoptions include vaccines, spay/neuter, adopter bag of food, adoption counseling by phone or email, and free health exam or first office call at a (local) participating veterinarian. Microchipping for cats/kittens is available for an additional $15 with any adoption.
Fees are reduced for some long term residents and senior pets (generally dogs over 7 years old). The reduced adoption fees range from $10.00 to $50.00.
Our policy is that all pets must be spayed or neutered prior to leaving the shelter. Fees may vary depending on the particular animal and the situation surrounding that animal.
We do not ship animals to adopters. Adopters are encouraged to bring all family members to help meet and select their new pet. Adopters complete an adoption application form and provide their veterinarian and landlord's phone number(s) for a reference.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
