Charlotte Mecklenburg Animal Services's Adoption Process

1. Visit the Facility and Find a Pet

2. Meet the Pet

3. Pay Fee

4. Take the Pet Home

As long the pet is spayed/neutered, you can take them home the same day.

Call 311 for more information! To view all of our adoptable animals, please visit https://charlottenc.gov/AnimalsCMPD/adoption/Pages/Petsearch.aspx

Not all adoptable animals are listed on Adopt a Pet. Citizens are encouraged to visit the shelter to view and interact with our adoptable animals.

Let us assist you with your adoption process. Please:

Have a valid driver’s license or state or government issued ID. If these do not have the correct address, bring in verification of your correct address. Could be a pay check, car registration, utility bill, anything!

Be at least 18 years of age.

If there are animals at home, please bring their current rabies certificates with you. If you need a pet license for your current pets at home then please also bring their proof of spay/neuter form with you; this way, your pet license will be $10 instead of $30.

Payments can be made with cash or local checks and MasterCard or Visa. No debit card transactions.

Adopting a cat? Don't forget to bring a cat carrier with you! If you're planning to adopt two, bring two carriers. If you forget to bring carriers, or you adopt a second a cat because you just couldn't decide between two, don't worry! We can sell you a temporary cat box for $5 each at the time of your adoption.

Occasionally, large animals are available for adoption. Ordinance requires livestock be auctioned, so the animal goes to the highest bidder. Auction notices are posted at the animal shelter, and on our site ten days prior to the auction.
