Fox Valley Humane Association's adoption process


Visit the Facility and Find a Pet

If you are interested in adopting and meeting one of our adoptable animals one-on-one, we will have you fill out our adoption questionnaire.


Meet the Pet

After completing the adoption questionnaire, you will be paired with one of our Adoption Counselors to help you find the right match.


Sign Adoption Contract

If a match is made, we will finalize the adoption paperwork and have you sign an adoption contract.


Take the Pet Home

Once the contract is signed you may take your new pet home, typically same day!

Additional adoption info

The Fox Valley Humane Association believes in caring for pets and their people. We have an open adoption process, and our goal is to get to know potential adopters on a personal level and best match them with a new companion. We encourage you to stop by during our open hours to meet our adoptable animals.
