Our Adoption Process:

Anyone looking to adopt a pet from our shelter should read, print and bring in a completed adoption application. The application helps our adoption counselors assist adopters in the selection of a new pet, and allows us to determine whether an adoption is in the animal's best interest.

Our adoption fee includes: the first series of vaccinations, leukemia testing or heartworm testing (as applicable), fecal exam for parasites and any medication and a seven day health guarantee. All adopters will also be given a complimentary one year membership and be placed on our mailing list.

Prospective adopters should...

- Be 18 years of age or older
- Have identification showing your present address
- Have the knowledge and consent of your landlord
- Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide training, medical treatment and proper care for a pet

We are often asked why we charge a fee for our animals when animals are available for “free” in newspaper ads or in front of the local supermarket. While we are grateful that you’ve chosen to adopt a shelter animal, the reality is that we, too, must pay for staffing, electricity, heat and food. Donations only cover a portion of these costs. But, if you compare what you get with an adoption from the DCSPCA to a “free” animal, you’ll see that we offer the best value by far. Chews Adoption!

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.
