How to adopt an animal
When you see an animal that interests you, ask for assistance. Please do not open the kennels or take any animals out.
When you find a pet you like, notify the office staff. You will fill out an adoption application.
A HOLD will be placed on the animal for you.
"It takes 24-48 hours to process your application. We will call you back by that time with any questions about your application and to tell you if you are approved. If you do not hear from us after 48 hours please give us a call to check the status of your application."
You must have an APPOINTMENT to pick up your new pet. At this time you sign the adoption contracts and pay the adoption fee – CASH, VISA, and MASTERCARD ONLY!
Your new pet comes with an ID tag, microchip ID, an adoption kit, and copies of the adoption contracts.
All animals must be transported in a safe and legal manner. Bring a leash or a pet carrier!
Pets going to homes outside of St. Joseph County must be altered BEFORE going home. See office staff for information.
