Please complete an adoption application to let us know which dog or cat you are interested in and a little bit about yourself. We will respond back through an email.
We Don’t Sell Pets – We Adopt Them into Loving Families!
We are dedicated to finding the best homes possible for our dogs and cats. The animals in our care often came to us because of abuse, neglect or abandonment. Sometimes they were surrendered by a person who couldn’t care for them appropriately.
But because they were lucky enough to find themselves at HSPC, these animals have a second chance. They’ve already had a hard life, so we owe it to them to screen their new families very carefully — and we take our screening process very seriously. We want these animals’ adoptive homes to be safe, loving, and permanent!
We go to great lengths to assure a good match between an animal and the new family environment. We want the animals and your families to be safe and happy. Our adoption policies reflect this commitment.
Our adoption screening process includes:
- Completing a thorough application
- Providing proof of address
- Perhaps allowing us to do a home check
We often ask adopters to bring their own dogs out to the shelter to meet the dog they would like to adopt. We review each application individually, so adopters need to allow enough time to visit with the animals, complete the application and interview with our adoption staff.
All adopters must be 21 years or older.
Our adoption fee is $100. This includes immunization shots, micro-chipping, worming, sterilization and any other medical care needed to make the animal healthy and ready for adoption. Post-adoption behavior support is also available.
Please be aware that we do not approve every adoption application we receive. If we believe for any reason that the animal is not a good match for an applicant, we reserve the right to not approve the adoption.
Adopting an animal is a long-term commitment that should not be made hastily, so take your time in making the decision to adopt! Carefully consider the time, money and energy it takes to care for a four-legged family member.
Consider adopting an older animal, instead of a puppy or kitten. Or caring for a pet with special needs. Or taking two playmates together. We have dozens of great companion animals who need good homes. Let us help you find the right one for you!
The cat application and dog application are now available as online forms. After submission, you may follow up with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by placing a telephone call to (501) 227-6166 for status. if you are interested in a specific animal, following up with and email and/or phone call is the best way to ensure that the application is processed in a timely manner.
