We are so happy you are making adoption your first option! Rescuing an animal is a very rewarding experience and we look forward to working with you through the adoption process. All animals will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations before leaving for their forever homes.


Adoption Process

Our process is designed to find the perfect animal for each adopter. Adoption is a lifelong commitment so we do our best to ensure that we are finding good matches, for both human and animal. Our staff will assist you in finding a match based on your lifestyle, living situation, and activity level. Adoptions are approval based and will be guided by a Canine or Feline Adoption Counselor.

The first step in our adoption process is filling out a short application. Applications may be completed online or in person at our facility. Once your application has been submitted, call or stop into the Humane Animal Treatment Society to review your form with an adoption counselor. View adoption counseling hours here. 

Make Preparations

Don't forget to discuss your plans to adopt with any family members, roommates, or landlords. After finding your perfect match, our adoption counselors will inform you of any supplies you will need. We will send you home with a small bag of food to help with the transition. 

Welcome Home

Transitioning from a shelter environment to a home setting is a major lifestyle change. With this change, it is very common for animals to behave out of character. Keep in mind that your household will want to exercise patience and understanding during this period. Please talk to our experienced staff or visit our behavior resource page if you have any questions about introducing a new animal into your home.
