TLHS adopted a mandatory spay/neuter policy in Feb. 2007. This means that all animals adopted will have to be spayed or neutered before the adopter takes them home. If the animal you would like to adopt is not "fixed" the process is normally - we will transport the animal to one of our volunteer vet offices to get spayed/neutered and you will be able to pick up the animal at the vet office (usually the next day).
We generally prefer that persons adopting animals be 21 years of age. However, persons 18-20 may adopt animals if they live on their own. We require that adoptive families not be restricted from owning pets by any rental agreements and that they have adequate facilities for the type animal they are adopting. Lap dogs, or cats that have been declawed, may need to stay inside. Big, active dogs may need to be outside in a large yard. Beyond that, the individual must sign an adoption statement promising to meet the animal's basic physical needs, that the animal is for themselves and not a third party, and that they will not sell the dogs to an animal research facility.
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.
