Hi, my name is Cali!

I am an older gal looking for a nice calm home. I am a very nice girl, who absolutely loves to be pet! When I’m not being pet I spend my time curled up taking a nice long cat nap! I kind of prefer to do my own thing when it comes to the other cats here at the shelter, but I wouldn’t mind having a house mate. I love people of all ages, so a home with children is not an issue! I have not yet been around dogs since coming to the shelter, so the staff does not know how I am with them. If you’re looking to add someone to your family then check me out!



Before you begin the adoption process, first think about what you want in a pet and whether you are ready to bring one into your life.

At HAHS, we’ll help you find an animal companion who’s just what you’re looking for. You’ll have a conversation with one of our adoption counselors about your preferences, your lifestyle, and your household so that we may guide you in choosing your new pet. Before you get started, be sure you can answer “yes” to these questions:

  • Do you live in a place where pets are welcome? (If you rent your home or land, you must have permission from your landlord to adopt a pet.)
  • Are you committed and able to care for an animal for his or her whole life, investing time and money into a new pet?
  • Are you committed and able to providing regular veterinary care for a new pet?

The Adoption Process:

Step 1.
Browse our pets available for adoption on our website hornellanimalshelter.org, or visit our shelter and meet our animals in person. We require that the whole family come to the shelter to meet the pet you are considering. If you’re adopting a dog and have a dog(s) currently living in your home, you will be required to bring your dog in for a meet and greet. You must provide proof that your dog(s) are current on their rabies, and distemper vaccines prior to setting up a meet and greet.

Step 2.
Visit our shelter, or website hornellanimalshelter.org to fill out an adoption application. You can find the adoption application under the 'forms' tab on our website. Once the application is completed please submit it to us via email, fax, mail, or dropping it off to the shelter. Once we receive your application we can begin the approval process. **Please note that the approval process can take anywhere from 1 to 7 days depending on how soon we can reach your references, veterinarian, and landlord (if applicable)**

Step 3.
Once you’ve been approved to adopt, you’ll pay an adoption fee — and in most cases you can bring home your new family member right away (provided the animal is of age for adoption)! In some cases, depending on the age, and status of the animal you have been approved for, the animal may be sent out on a foster to adopt with you. Typically this is done when an animal still needs to be spayed/ neutered, is not old enough to be spayed/ neutered yet, is on medication, or if you want to make sure the animal is going to be a perfect fit. If this is the case, then an adoption counselor will let you know the length of which the animal will be on foster to adopt, and when you will be able to finalize the adoption.

Congratulations!

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN ADOPTIONS

Our Adoption Process...

Adopt a new friend!

HAHS has an adoption application that you can fill out if you are interested in one of our animals. You can find our adoption application on our website hornellanimalshelter.org under the "Forms" tab. Once we receive the application we review and contact veterinary and personal references and make sure that the animal chosen is the best fit for your family and lifestyle.

Adoption fees:

Cats (over 1 year): $60

Cats & Kittens (under 1 year): $80 + $35 spay/neuter deposit (if applicable)

Dogs (over 1 Year): $100

Dogs (under 1 Year): $150

*An additional $35.00 deposit fee is charged above the cost of adoption if the animal is not yet spayed or neutered. The $35.00 fee will be refunded once proof of spay/neuter has been provided. Per NYS law, this MUST be done within 30 day of adoption, or when the animal turns 6 months of age.

It is our goal to adopt out healthy cats and dogs, who are up-to-date on all age appropriate vaccines, de-wormings, and flea treatment. Our dogs are also micro-chipped, and cats are tested for Feline Leukemia & Feline AIDS before adoption.
