Our adoption program is open to all qualified pet owners looking to adopt a new pet. We adopt out of county as well as out of state.
Encourage pet owners to be responsible for pets in their care by providing educational programs on humane treatment, animal behavior training, and proper control.
Appropriately enforce county, state, and federal animal laws.
Provide safe shelter and veterinary care for lost, abandoned and unwanted animals.
Return to owners or adopt to new homes, as many impounded animals as possible.
Humanely euthanize injured and sick animals.
Encourage spay/neuter and provide reduced-cost surgery for Palm Beach County pet owners through three spay/neuter programs.
Conduct other effective programs, which protect the health, safety, and welfare of animals and the residents of Palm Beach County.
Pet adoptions are not handled by phone. Please visit our shelter to view and interact with the adoptable pets before making a final decision about adoption.
We are open 7 days a week:
Monday - Friday, 11am - 6pm
Saturday, 10am - 5pm
Sunday, 11am - 4pm
All adopted animals will be spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, protected again fleas and ticks, microchipped, sent home with a free bag of Science Diet pet food, and much more!
The shelter has also partnered with local veterinarians to provide a free Health Care Certificate with every adoption. The certificate offers a free exam for your pet from your choice of partricipating veterinarians and has a value of up to $500 in savings.
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.
