You must include the following:

  • A Picture
  • Breed
  • Age
  • Size (weight)
  • Exact date of last vaccinations and what the vaccinations were
  • Is your pet spayed/neutered?
  • medical problems
  • behavioral problems
  • Good with other animals? Dogs? Cats?
  • Good with children?
  • What is the reason that you need to surrender your pet?

Please note that Animal House Shelter receives a huge number of these requests every day and we can only take in a limited number of animals based on our capacity and the number of animals we adopt out.  Most of our space is reserved for animals as that are urgently awaiting rescue at high kill facilities.  Also note that there may be required vaccinations and testing that needs to be done prior to relinquishment and that if your pet is NOT up to date on vaccinations or spayed/neutered there will be a required relinquishment donation based on the particular situation.  We do our best to get back to all emails in a timely manner and we appreciate your patience.  We encourage you to visit the links and resources page of our website by clicking on the link below for listings of other shelters and rescues that may have more immediate space available.

Employment Application

**We unfortunately can not send out a thank you for donations under $100 so we can save that money for the animals under our care.  We will always send notification when you make a donation ‘in honor of’, ‘in memory of’, for birthday/memorial/wedding gifts no matter what the amount you donate.**

For more information please look at the “How to Adopt” page.

We do not have a history on most of the animals up for adoption since we rescue them Animal Control and they are usually labeled as strays.  We can only tell you their behavior since they have been with us.  We do not know the specific breeds of each dog and we can not guarantee their age.  Once again, because they are rescued we have to guess as to what they MAY be a mix of and what age they most likely are.

CALL OR EMAIL TO ASK ABOUT  FOSTERING A DOG OR CAT AND OUR SENIOR TO SENIOR PROGRAM.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING, PLEASE FILL OUT THE ONLINE APPLICATION AND CLICK ON SUBMIT AT THE BOTTOM WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED.  WE RECEIVE THE APPLICATION IMMEDIATELY AND WILL CALL YOU AS SOON AS IT HAS BEEN REVIEWED.
