Adoptable Animals

How To Adopt A Pet

  • Adoptable animals in our shelter can be seen in our online directories.
  • We also list animals in foster homes. We occasionally list animals from other organizations as a courtesy.
  • Each pet listing will mention where the animal is located, so make note of the specific contact information.
  • Cats and/or kittens are also available to meet you most Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at our Cat Adoption Center at our Arnold thrift store.
  • Please note that we cannot take holds on animals over the phone or by email. You must come to our adoption center to meet and adopt our pets.
  • Potential adopters must meet adoption eligibility requirements.
  • Fees: Cats, $35; Kittens, $50; Dogs, $75; Puppies, $90. Small animal adoption fees vary. We often run adoption specials.
