The Adoption Process:
Finding your new best friend is easy:
Step 1. It all starts with a visit to our Georgetown shelter. Our staff can give you all the guidance you need and provide you with an Adoption Questionnaire. The questionnaire will help us learn more about you so that we can help match you with the perfect pet.
Step 2. If you find a pet you’d love to adopt, we’ll review your Adoption Application with you and make sure the situation is best for the animal and you.
Step 3. If you’re adopting a dog and have other dogs in your home, we’ll ask you to do a meet and greet at the shelter before taking the animal home. We’ll need proof of rabies vaccinations for your current pets. The primary caregiver must be at the meet and greet. And children age 10 and under that live in the home must meet the pet before adoption.
Step 4. Once the adoption has been approved, you pay the adoption fee and take your new friend home for a lifetime of love!
We take care of everything you need to get started, including:
- Spaying or neutering
- Canine DHPP and Bordetella vaccinations and feline DRTC vaccinations
- Rabies vaccination
- Feline leukemia/ FIV test
- Heartworm testing
*Please Note – Adoption showings end ½ hour prior to closing
*We reserve the right to request a home visit or deny any adoption if we believe it is in the best interest of the animal
