--------------------------------------

How do I adopt a pet?

Once you visit the shelter and select your pet, you will be asked to complete an adoption application. The application will include information about how you plan to care for your new friend, where he or she will live, what your expectations of the pet's behavior may be and whether pets already in your home are legally licensed.

If you do not own your home, we will need to contact the legal property owner to verify that you may have the pet you are interested in.

Certain animals will have specific adoption requirements in addition to the general requirements. These can include a fence check, no small kids, etc.

If your application is approved, you will be asked to complete several other forms including an adoption contract. This process takes approximately 30 minutes.

The pet you select will remain at the shelter for transport to the veterinarian for its spay/neuter surgery.
