All animals are listed as spayed/neutered, even if they currently are not, since they will be fixed before leaving the shelter. To adopt an animal, you must bring: Proof of home ownership (e.g. property tax bill in your name, deed showing title in your name, or mortgage statement in your name), or a rental contract that states pets of the type you wish to adopt are allowed. Valid government-issued identification. In addition, all household members (including children) must come to the shelter to visit with the pet you wish to adopt. Please bring the animal's number with you to assist us in finding them in the shelter.
