Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Many wonderful dogs and cats are at the shelter, waiting for a forever home. These animals can be seen during our adoption hours. Pets come and go, so please check back frequently! If you are no longer able to care for your pet properly, you can turn him/her into the shelter. Proof of residency is required for Union residents to surrender their pets. We ask that you please bring your pet's medical records and provide us with any information you can to assist us in attempting to place your pet in a good home. Animal surrenders are accepted during the shelter hours only.

We welcome rescue groups willing to pull animals for placement through their groups. If you have not pulled from this shelter before, please contact the shelter to indicate you wish to do so.
We welcome schools to do fundraisers and donation drives. We can also make arrangements for a walk-thru of the shelter. Please contact the shelter for more information.
Once the application is received we will forward it through the appropriate approval process and you will be notified. Obtaining approval in advance does not in any way obligate you to adopt an animal but it does speed up the process should you meet an animal that is right for you.
Please include the pet's name, ID number, and description if there is more than 1 cat in the same cage in your information request and/or application. The ID# is the same as their Cage#.
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.
