NEWS ARCHIVE (includes photos from Hurricane Katrina and more!)
Step 1: Meet the pets. Come visit us here at the animal shelter or at an event we are involved in (see news for updates) and get up close and personal with your possible new best friend.
Step 2: Consider taking a pet on a trial basis. We offer a "Three-Day Trial" so that you can take a pet home with you and keep it for up to three days to ensure the animal will be able to properly blend with your home environment (children, other pets, other family members) BEFORE you complete an adoption. The trial is a free service. We do require a contract to be signed (Click here to preview the terms) by someone over the age of 18.
Step 3: The Adoption Fees. We require that all animals adopted must been seen by a veterinarian and be spayed or neutered. The adoption fees vary according to the type of animal and its veterinary past. Please read the following to learn more about how this works.
For those who will be taking their pets to Taylor County veterinarians:
For those who will be taking their pets to a veterinarian outside of Taylor County: You will not be charged the veterinary fees you see above. You are still required to take your newly adopted pet to a veterinarian and we must verify the appointment to do so before you can take the pet home. We will later also verify that the spay/neuter procedure has been completed.
Step 4: Sign the Adoption Contract. Click here to view the terms.
Step 5: Have your new pet microchipped. We offer implantation of HomeAgain microchips into your pet at the time of the adoption. There is no charge for this procedure. You will later need to register your personal information with HomeAgain in order to complete the ID process.
Step 6: You are ready to go. Grab a free adoption pack (includes sample foods, informational booklets, coupons, etc), grab your new pet, and look forward to your new life with your new friend!
