Our Adoption Process:

Here at the Red Desert Humane Society we strive to place pets in the best homes possible. Therefore, once you have an animal in mind we ask that you fill out an adoption application either here in person or through email.

Once we receive your application we will review your application. During this process we will make calls to Landlords (if applicable). As well as your veterinarian that has provided care for your past or present pets.

We will then schedule a home visit for all in town adoptions. If this is not possible we ask that you provide photos of your current residence where the dog will be living.

Once this is complete we ask that your bring your current animals (if any) to the shelter to meet your potential new pet as to prevent any possible problems once you get home.

If all of this goes well and you are approved we will then have you sign our adoption contract as well as pay the adoption fee which these fees cover the animals alteration and all vaccinations the fees are as follows:

100 for all ADULT dogs
*120 for Puppies

40 for ADULT cats
*75 for Kittens

*****All animals which are to young to be altered before leaving the shelter will require a $75 dollar deposit which will be refunded once our shelter has received a bill from our vet as proof this animal has been altered****

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.
