Additional adoption info

Our adoption process is thorough and fair for both the family and the animal.

If you rent, we will call your landlord to verify a pet deposit. If you have current or past animals, we call your vet to verify they have vaccinations and are spayed/neutered. If adopting a dog, we ask that you bring any current dogs to meet the potential adopter at the shelter site. Some dog breeds may require a home inspection to verify proper fencing and environment.

You can find out more about our adoption process at http://www.ghhs.org/adoption-process/

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Huntsville, AL.

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.
