Dane County Humane Society's adoption process


Visit the Facility and Find a Pet

The first step is to visit us and find the pets you are interested in meeting.


Meet the Pet

Our trained adoption counselors will help you visit with the pets you are interested in.



An adoption counselor will meet with you to tell you everything we know about the pet you are interested in and answer all your questions.


Sign Adoption Contract

If you find a pet to join your family, we will ask you to sign an adoption contract and pay the adoption fee.


Take the Pet Home

Most of our animals are ready to go with you the same day. However, we can hold an animal for you for 24 hours with a $20 deposit.
