Our Adoption Process:

Adoption fee is $100 for most of the animals at PAWS. The fee includes the animal being spayed/neutered, current on shots and microchipped. Dogs who are old enough are heartworm tested and current on their heartworm preventative. Cats are also tested for Feline Aids and Leukemia.

We require that anyone who lives in the household and any other dogs living in the household come meet the adoptee as part of the adoption process. The animal must be spay/neutered prior to going to its new home. If the adopter elects to have the animal spay/neutered at their own veterinarian we will allow that provided the veterinarian is located in Okaloosa County. If the new owner elects to do this, we will transport the animal to the veterinarian on the day of their surgery and the owner can pick them up from their veterinarian.

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.
