Find A Pet
All dogs are microchipped, neutered/spayed, current on all vaccines, heartworm tested and started on Tri Heart Plus & Vectra 3D.
I will be available for adoption on December 27th. I cannot have any visitors before December 27th. You will need to fill out an online application and receive a phone call back from a staff member that everything is ok with the application prior to December 27th. All family members and any dogs from the household need to be present at the time of the adoption.
We open at 11 am Friday mornings and we will be helping adoptions in the order of when they submitted an approved application to us. There will be a sign in sheet on the front door at 10:30 am so that we can pull applications for the people that arrive between 10:30-11:00 am. Again, the order in which adoptions will come in to the shelter to see any adoptable dogs or cats first thing on Friday mornings will be as to when the application was submitted to Animal House Shelter so there is no need to come to the shelter any earlier than 10:30 am to sign in. This will be the procedure for people that arrive between 10:30-11:00 am.
After 11 am, on Friday mornings it will be first come, first serve after we help all of the adoptions that signed in between 10:30-11:00 am. Most people submit general applications to us which do not specify a name or a particular litter they are interested in so there is no way for us to know until people arrive Friday morning at 10:30 how many people are interested in a particular litter, puppy, kitten, cat or adult dog. We always have around 300 dogs & cats available for adoption and the adoption counselors will help you to find the right companion for your family!
Our website is always kept 100% up to date with who is currently available. All new animals (40/week) are added to the site 2 weeks before their availability date to give you time to fill out your adoption application and get the family ready to come out to the shelter that day. As soon as animals are adopted, they are moved to the Adopted Pets page so if they are still listed on the Adoptable Dogs or Cats page, they are still available. So keep any eye on the site for any animals being added as available for adoption as new animals are added everyday! We would recommend if you haven’t done so already that you submit a general online adoption application with us so it is on file for when you are ready to come out and adopt. The adoption counselors will be able to show you many that would be a good fit for your family. We do go in order of when you submitted your application with us. So it is always best that you get your general application for any animal in with us as soon as possible.
Please fill out an online application and we will give you a call as soon as we receive it. Visit our ‘Adopt’ page to view adoption process steps, policies, requirements and FAQ. View our ‘Visit’ page for hours and directions to our shelter. We look forward to seeing you soon!
