Adoption Process

If you are willing to wait for the right animal to be matched to you,
you are an ideal candidate for PAWS Animal Shelter. As our success rate proves, these precious Animals are well worth the wait.

OUR PROCESS

1

Apply

We appreciate you wanting to bring a Animal into your home. In order for us to find the right pet for you, we need you to submit an adoption application.

2

Review

We will review your application upon receipt. If we have any questions or concerns, we will contact you for clarity.

3

Home Visit

Once your application review is complete, a PAWS Animal Shelter volunteer will contact you to schedule a home visit to meet in person and discuss all-things pet. During the home visit, we look for potential hazards for the Animal that the adopter may not have considered. All household members must be present during the home visit. This includes all pets.

4

Finding Your Pet

Once approved to adopt, the search for your Animal begins. Volunteers will begin to evaluate pets currently in our foster care program who may be a good fit for you and your family. We would also be open to discussing Animals in our care that you are specifically interested in.
