Adoption Process

We're so happy that you've come to A.D.O.P.T. in search of your new pet! Our facility is full of amazing animals ready to find their forever homes. Below is an outline of how our application process works:

  1. Visit our shelter during adoption hours to complete an application and meet our animals. (You may complete and submit an online application prior to your visit if you wish to speed up the process!)
  2. You will meet with an adoption counselor who will introduce you to our animals and answer any questions you might have. If you'd like to spend some one-on-one time with an animal, we have private "get acquainted" rooms so you can get to know your potential pet outside of their normal shelter environment.
  3. If you find a pet that you think would be a perfect fit for you (and your family), you can submit a request to adopt your new friend! Your adoption counselor will help determine if it's the best match for both you and your furry friend.
  4. Once approved, you can schedule a day/time to pick up your new family member!  Please note:  We do not do same-day adoptions.

A few things to note:

  • All members of the family will need to meet your potential new pet. We want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone!
  • You must be 21 years or older to adopt. Please bring a valid form of I.D.
  • If you are planning on adopting a dog and already have a dog at home, we will ask that you schedule an appointment to bring him/her to the shelter to meet your potential new pet. 
  • The adoption fee includes a routine veterinarian examination, spay/neuter, microchip, current vaccinations, deworming/parasite preventative*, heartworm testing and preventative in dogs, and testing for feline leukemia and FIV in cats. *A.D.O.P.T. only runs fecal tests on animals showing symptoms of a parasitic infection. Each animal is given a preventative dewormer that it is ~98% effective. The odds are unlikely that your animal came into our shelter with a parasite and is one of the 2% of cases not resolved by the initial dewormer, but you may wish to talk to your vet about running an easy & inexpensive fecal test at your initial check up if you have concerns.
