Our Adoption Process:

If you rent your current home, a document signed by your landlord giving approval for you to keep a pet in your home. You may provide either a lease or a signed letter from your landlord. Please include the landlord's business address and phone number.

If you are coming from outside Adams County to adopt one of our pets, please plan to bring the name and phone number of the humane society that serves the area where you live.

All animals in your household must be current on vaccinations and be spayed or neutered. If you have a copy of your animals shot records please bring them along. If you already have a dog and are interested in adopting another canine companion, we require that the two dogs meet at the Animal Shelter, on neutral territory. If you have any questions or concerns about making this introduction, please call the Animal Shelter before you visit: 717-334-8876.

Please note: The Adams County SPCA reserves the right to do follow-up visits and to pre-adoption and post-adoption home checks by our Humane Officer. The Adams County SPCA reserves the right to deny any adoption application.

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.
