Areas Churchill Animal Protection Society serves

The Churchill Animal Protection Society (CAPS) impounds animals from Churchill County. We do, however, adopt animals to other areas - we are just looking for forever loving and committed homes for the animals in our care.

Churchill Animal Protection Society's adoption process


Visit the Facility and Find a Pet

Come on down to meet our pets! They are cute on pictures, but they're better looking in person. Let them show off their best attributes.



Tell us a little about yourself, your lifestyle and what you are looking for. We can help you find a good match.


Meet the Pet

For dogs, we require a meet and greet with all the members of the household, including your current dogs to ensure our dog is a good match.


Sign Adoption Contract

If you and our pet are a match, we can then complete the adoption.


Pay Fee

Just a minor detail to complete the adoption. Make sure you bring cash or check only.


Take the Pet Home

Once the contract is finalized, you can bring your new best friend home and show'em off to your friends and family.

Additional adoption info

All dogs require a 6' fence or secure kennel area while they are outside (they can't be tethered). Make sure you bring pictures or video of your fence-in-yard with you standing next to the fence.

All the cats must be inside only pets.

If you rent, please make sure you bring a written consent from your landlord.

If an adoption doesn't work out the dog or cat is to be returned to CAPS.

We do not adopt puppies or kittens 6 months of age or younger to families with children 5 years of age or younger.

The adoption fee for adult dogs and puppies over 6 months is $80 and the foster-to-adopt deposit for puppies under 6 months is $130. The adoption fee for adult cats and kittens over 6 months is $50 and the foster-to-adopt deposit for kittens under 6 months is $100. Call to learn more about our Foster-to-Adopt program for puppies and kittens under 6 months. All dogs and cats are spayed or neutered and current on their shots.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
