Adopt a Pet
Adopting a Pet
Profiles of available pets can be viewed on Petfinder.com.
We encourage interested adopters to visit pets at the shelter. Appointments are encouraged so that we may be better prepared to facilitate this visit. Bring your family and current pets with you for a meet and greet! We have two (2) areas set up like living rooms in which you can spend time with the animals you are considering adopting. You can also take them for walks or let them loose in the play yard to see how they interact with you. Once you have found the right match, we will review your paperwork. If approved, you will receive copies of your new pet's medical records, a free 4 lb. bag of dry food, a free leash and either collar or harness (for dogs, while supplies last).
Adoption fees for in-county residents are $55 for a dog or puppy and $45 for a cat or kitten. Adoption fees for individuals outside of Orange County are $60 for a dog or puppy and $50 for a cat or kitten. Please note that if you rent your home, we require a copy of your lease agreement or a letter from your landlord outlining any restrictions on the number, size, or breed of pets you are permitted to have.
Animals will only be adopted to persons 18 years of age or older.
We do not have to wait for heaven to be surrounded by hope, love and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four feet.
