Adoption Policy

  • All members of the family must be present in order to adopt. We want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone!
  • If you are planning on adopting a dog and already have an existing dog, we ask that you bring him/her to the shelter to meet your potential new pet. This is not necessary for cats.
  • You must be 21 years or older to adopt. Please bring a valid form of I.D.
  • Adopters must provide proof of residence.
  • Adopters must be willing to allow an A.D.O.P.T. representative to make a follow-up contact, either in person or by phone.
  • Spaying/Neutering of cats and dogs through any humane organization is state law.
  • If at any time you are unable to keep the pet or offer it proper care, it must be offered back to A.D.O.P.T. before alternate arrangements are made.
  • Applications must be completed and approved prior to adopting an animal.
  • If approved, an applicant must sign a contract to adopt an animal which outlines the responsibilities of the shelter and the adopter. This contract is legally binding. To view a copy of the contract language, download the appropriate PDF for either a dog or cat.
  • Our primary adoption area is within 100 miles of the shelter.
