Panhandle Animal Shelter's Adoption Process

Our friendly staff will work with you to find the right dog or cat for your home. Get started by checking our online adoption listings or stop by the shelter.

It’s important you spend time getting to know prospective pets. If you have questions or wish to visit with an animal, just ask a staff member for assistance.

To adopt from PAS, you must be present and at least 18 years of age or older.

If you find an animal you wish to adopt, we’ll review the pet’s file to ensure that you and the pet you’ve selected are a good match. This will include medical and/or behavioral considerations as well.

See our website for fees.
