ADOPTION PROCESS

Thank you for considering adopting a shelter animal.

    When you visit our shelter seeking a pet to adopt we first ask that you complete an Adoption Profile. Once you choose an animal, an adoption counselor will meet with you and the pet you have selected in one of our Get Acquainted Areas for some social time and interaction. These areas provide a quiet and private space to get to know each other better. During the visit, the adoption counselor may discuss any past experiences you or a family member has had with animals, current animals you have in your home, your lifestyle with regard to work schedules and the kinds of activities you enjoy and your housing situation (rent, own, the size of your yard, etc.)
