How to Adopt

Humane Animal Rescue’s adoption team works to match people with an adoptable animal. To assist with making a match, an adoption counselor will learn more about the adopter and share information about the animals.

Adoption Process

Adoptable animals can be viewed online. You must visit with the animal at the adoption center or partner business location to complete the adoption process. If you plan to adopt, please arrive an hour before the adoption center is scheduled to close.

Step 1: Fill out the adoption questionnaire (link to questionnaire)

A completed adoption questionnaire will be reviewed by staff before meeting an animal. This one page application helps our counselors learn more about your lifestyle and expectations of your new pet! Questionnaires are accepted on first come-first serve basis.

Step 2: Meet Adoptable Animals!

An adoption team member or volunteer will share information about the animals to help you learn more about each one to ensure you find the right match! Once you find a match, the staff will introduce you to the animal in an area outside the kennel or cage so you can interact with the animal.

Step 3: Adopt

Most times, you are able to take your new best friend home the same day you meet them! The adoption contract and paperwork can be finalized the day of your visit. If the animal is awaiting their spay/neuter procedure, the animal will remain at the shelter to be picked up by the adopter on a designated date.

Holds

If you need extra time to gather your lease, household members, or your canine companion needs to come in for a meet & greet with the adoptable dog, we offer a $25.00 non-refundable hold for 24 hours. If the adoption is finalized, the amount will be deducted from the adoption fee.

Note: We do not accept holds over the phone, via email, or social media. They are only offered after you meet with an animal at the adoption center.

Adoption Guidelines

If you plan to adopt, there are a few basics to bring along with you:

  • A valid form of photo ID (adopters must be 18 years or older)
  • Proof of address
  • If you rent, we encourage you to talk with your landlord about bringing home a pet. If pets are permitted, verify with your landlord if there are breed or species restrictions.
  • We encourage all individuals who will be in regular contact with your new pet meet before you take the pet home! This includes: children, significant other, and your existing dog (if you’re adopted a dog), or your rabbit (if adopting a rabbit).

Note: We do not offer cat to cat introductions, nor different species meetings. We will provide you with resources on proper introductions.

Adoption Fees

Adoption fees are charged to help us offset some of our costs for caring for the thousands of animals that enter our doors each year. All animals are spayed or neutered, microchipped, given vaccinations appropriate for their age at the time of adoption, treated for parasites, and given flea/tick protection. In addition, dogs (6 months or older) are tested for heartworm.
