Our Adoption Process:

To ensure our animals go to a loving home, the Alvin Animal Adoption Center requires potential adopters to fill out an adoption application. We require proof from applicants that all other pets are current on their rabies vaccine, have city tags (if you live in the City of Alvin), and have permission from your landlord (if you rent or live in an apartment). The fee to adopt a pet can vary depending on whether or not the particular animal has a sponsor. The normal fees are $110 for a cat and $130 for a dog - this includes sterilization of your pet (spay or neuter), rabies vaccine, first round of basic vaccines, microchip, city tags (if you live in the City of Alvin), and the adoption fee.

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.
