You must be 21 with a valid identification that matches the address listed on this survey.
Adoption approval can take 24-48 hours. Approval notification may be done by email or telephone (please check your spam/junk folder or call the shelter if you do not hear back in 48 hours!)
All animals can be placed on hold for a $50 fee if you are approved to adopt before they are ready to leave. Please note, the hold fee does not count toward the adoption fee. Adoptions staff have the final say on all adoptions based on appropriateness of an animal for the experience level and environment you can provide. Not all dogs are appropriate for all people, our main goal is making sure an adoption is successful.
Approved applications are kept on file for 3 months.
If you are unsure if you are pre-approved, please contact the shelter at 603-447-5955.
