Become a Pet Parent

Thank you for considering a shelter animal for a forever friend! In 2019, more than 300 dogs, puppies, cats and kittens were adopted from the Animal Welfare League.

Where do I start? 

  1. Look at all adoptable pets via the link to Adopt-a-Pet or Petfinder
  2. Complete the online Dog Adoption Application or Cat Adoption Application. Doing so speeds up the process, allowing the adoption coordinators to contact you.  This does not obligate you in any way. 
  3. Come visit several pets and spend time with them. The coordinators can arrange to meet you, and if you are considering a pet in foster care, will schedule a visit. 


What do you get? (Retail value of $300-400!) 

  • Physical exam 
  • All required vaccinations
  • Up-to-date on Heartworm and Flea/Tick prevention 
  • Deworming 
  • Heartworm test (dogs), FeLV test (cats) 
  • Spay or neuter surgery 
  • Microchip (dogs only, cats for a $10 fee) 

What are the fees? 

Our adoption fees vary per animal depending upon age, breed, special needs; the Adoption Coordinators determine each fee. 

Thank you for considering a shelter animal for a forever friend!
