Areas Ames Animal Shelter Serves

The Ames Animal Shelter provides pet adoption services to the residents in the City of Ames, Iowa and surrounding communities.

Animal Control, owner surrender pet programs and other services are proudly provided to residents of Ames only.

Ames Animal Shelter's Adoption Process

The Ames Animal Shelter believes in an adoption approach that considers important details for finding the right fit, such as a person's home, interests and lifestyle. We then match those with an animal's social, exercise and training needs.

Unlike some agencies “pass or fail” application procedures, we strive to match people and animals through education and discovery. We accomplish this through conversation to create an effective, pleasant adoption experience — and most important — to make lasting matches.

Each situation, adopter and animal requires a different approach. And while we reserve the right to refuse an adoption, we always make every effort to work with you to address concerns or find the most appropriate homeless animal.

Please plan on spending at least one hour for the adoption process — we’re confident that you’ll agree that this small investment of time will be well worth the countless hours of enjoyment that will result from finding “the perfect match.”

Requirements for Adoption
Before falling in love with one of our animals, please make sure you are aware of the following:

• Adopters must be at least 18 years old and present valid photo ID with proof of current address.

• We encourage or may require all household members to meet the new pet prior to adoption.

• If you have a dog and want to adopt another, please bring your current dog for a dog introduction.

• Written landlord approval is required or proof of home ownership may be required.

• While we always make every effort to work with you to address concerns or find the most appropriate companion animal, we do reserve the right to refuse an adoption.
