Hot Springs Village Animal Control Intake Hours
Monday - Friday: 8:00 to 3:30
The very best way to pick a pet is to come to the Adoption Center to see our available animals and arrange to meet those who are in foster care. Better still, before you come, view our available pets on Adopt-A-Pet.
Another benefit to coming to the Adoption Center is that animals and adopters frequently have a special relationship that starts the very first time they meet. You may find the love of your life being very different than what you envisioned. The pet you will be most pleased with will be the one with the temperament that fits your personality. That frequently has absolutely nothing to do with the looks or breed of the animal.
When you adopt one of our pets, you will get an animal that has been checked by our veterinarian, spayed or neutered, given basic shots (including Rabies and puppy/kitten shots), a folder with the medical history and various useful information, and a contact with someone to answer any questions you might have as your pet settles into your home.
What we will ask of you is a small adoption donation to the League, which is only a very small portion of what you would pay a veterinarian for all those services. We will also ask you to promise that, if for any reason it does not work out, that you will bring the animal back to us. We have made a financial commitment to that pet because we felt it would give someone a great deal of pleasure, therefore we made a substantial monetary and emotional commitment to the animal.
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.
