Our Adoption Process...

Anyone looking to adopt a pet from our shelter should read, print and bring in a completed adoption application. The application helps our adoption counselors assist adopters in the selection of a new pet, and allows us to determine whether an adoption is in the animal's best interest.

Prospective adopters should...

- Be 18 years of age or older
- Have identification showing your present address
- Have the knowledge and consent of your landlord (if applicable)
- Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide training, medical treatment and proper care for a pet

We are often asked why we charge a fee for our animals when animals are available for “free” in newspaper ads or in front of the local supermarket. While we are grateful that you’ve chosen to adopt a shelter animal, the reality is that we, too, must pay for staffing, electricity, heat and food. Donations only cover a portion of these costs. But, if you compare what you get with an adoption from the DCSPCA to a “free” animal, you’ll see that we offer the best value by far. Chews Adoption!
