Adoption Information

Interested in Adopting?

If you are interested in adopting one of the animals you've seen online, please complete our online adoption application.  Please note that many of our dogs and cats live in fosterhomes, not at our adoption center. You may email us at adopt@foothillshumanesociety.org if you wish to meet these pets that are in foster homes and we'll be happy to help!

Adoption Process

We want to make it easy and fun to bring home a new best friend!  When you choose an animal you'd like to make part of your family, one of our friendly adoption counselors will spend time reviewing your application with you to ensure the pet you've chosen will be a great fit with your home and lifestyle. Your counselor will advise you on training, introductions with to other pets and family members, and can answer any other questions you might have. A home visit may be required for particular animals to make sure their special needs are met.  You may complete our ONLINE ADOPTION APPLICATION or download this .pdf Adoption Application.

Adoption Fees

Your new pet's adoption fee will be based on age and species.  Unlike many adoption centers, FHS does not require increased adoption fees for purebred or 'designer breed' dogs or cats.  Our adoption fees are also much less than those at other shelters, even though they are fully vetted, trained and ready to go home:  Our adoptions fees are as follows:

  • Dogs age 4 months and older are $50
  • Puppies under 4 months are $100
  • Cats age 4 months and older are $35
  • Kittens under 4 months are $50

We often hold special promotions when these fees are lowered, waived or adopters 'name their own fee' for adoptions.

Your adoption fee covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery, testing, vaccinations, and microchipping. Your new pet has received all the love, attention, medications, and veterinary care they need to join their new family!
