The Adoption Process


One of the most frequently asked questions that we hear at the Humane Society is, “How do I go about adopting a dog or cat?” It is a question we love to hear and never tire of answering. For those of you who have come online for that answer, this is our basic adoption process:
1.       Adopting a new pet is not a decision that should be made lightly.  Before going to the Humane Society for a new dog or cat, you should have an idea  what type of new pet you are looking for (what size, temperament, age, etc…best fits your lifestyle). This will help to narrow your options, and the adoption counselor will be informed enough to make a match that will meet both your and the pet’s needs best. 
2.       If you see a dog or cat that you are interested in adopting, you will then fill out an application for adoption. Keep in mind that all adoptions are subject to approval, and can be a case by case approval process. For example, in addition to having your other pets up- to- date and well cared for, you also have to meet any special needs of the specific pet you are considering.
3.       If all the stars are aligned in your favor, we can process adoptions the same day that you apply, although this is not always the case. Be prepared to wait for approval for some adoptable pets in the cases of special medical needs, several applications on same pet, or simply time to properly process your application by contacting the required references.
4.   Adoption fee for dogs is $150.
5.   Adoption fee for cats is $75
