Panhandle Humane Society's adoption process


Visit the Facility and Find a Pet

Our Shelter is located across the street from Warehouse Fitness Center. You can come into the shelter to visit all of our available animals.


Meet the Pet

Once you find a animal that you are interested in online or at the shelter you can ask a staff member to meet the animal.



You must fill out a questionnaire in person and complete an adoption interview before taking an animal home. Landlords will be called.

Additional adoption info

All adoptions are same day. We do not put holds on cats and will only put a hold on a dog if it is awaiting surgery.

About Panhandle Humane Society

The Mission of the Panhandle Humane Society is to provide a nurturing and fear-free environment for the community and its pets in our care utilizing the Five Freedoms model.

The Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare:

1. Freedom from hunger and thirst by easy access to fresh, clean water and a diet to maintain health and vigor.

2. Freedom from discomfort by providing an appropriate environment, including shelter and a comfortable resting area.

3. Freedom from pain, injury, or disease by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.

4. Freedom to express normal behavior by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal's own kind.

5. Freedom from fear and distress by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
