Adoption Policy

You can fill out an application one of the following ways:

1. You can visit our Forms page to download an electronic application you can return, via email, fax or by mail.

 2. You can click on the following link to request that an application be sent to you via email: Request for Application.

 3. You can also visit the shelter in person at 380 N. Oak St.

If you are interested in a specific pet, please make a note of that on your application. You can not adopt until you have been notitified that you have been approved by the shelter. If you rent, the staff needs to verify that you are allowed to own a pet; therefore your landlord's phone number is required when filling out an application. If you have owned a pet, a vet reference is needed. We appreciate your cooperation.

The Friends of the City of Buffalo Animal Shelter, through fund raising has help the CBAS to establish a program to assist in providing a low cost S/N opportunity for new pet owners. On the day of adoption an appointment is made with the participating veterinarian and the animal is transported the following day for surgery. Owners are instructed to call the veterinarian for discharge information. This program is mandatory for all bully breeds. The new owner is responsible for the balance of the surgery.

Please contact the Shelter for the most up-to-date pricing on adoption fees.
