Our Adoption Process

Come into the Shelter …. meet our animals … and select one you’d like to adopt — perhaps one you’ve read about on the website.  Take a look at some of our recent adoptions.

We have a 24-hour waiting period on all adoptions. Potential adopters may fill out an adoption request form which is reviewed and generally approved by the staff of the Shelter.  However, sometimes, in the interest of the animal, the adoption is denied.

Each animal adopted from the Shelter (if old enough) has been spayed or neutered. If the animal is too young for the procedure at the time of adoption, the adopter will be given a certificate for a free spay/neuter at any of the Kerr County veterinarians.

All of our cats available for adoption have been tested for feline leukemia and are negative.

All of our dogs have been tested for heartworm and are either negative or have been treated before being put up for adoption.

All of our adoptable animals are current on their shots.

The adopter will need to sign an adoption agreement — in which they agree to spay/neuter the animal if it is not already spayed or neutered.

Adopters will need to show a valid ID photo or current driver’s license.

A foster program is offered for those who are uncertain if the animal will fit into their environment. Procedures followed are the same as for an adoption — however, if the animal does not get along with the other animals belonging to the potential adopter, it may be returned to the Shelter.  After 7 days (usually), the animal must either be adopted or returned to the Shelter.

There are some animals available that are not at the Shelter.  As a community service, we are providing that information here: Other Animals
