Adopt

Interested in Adopting?

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 staff members will spend time reviewing your adoption application with you to ensure the pet you’ve chosen will be a great fit with your home and lifestyle. Our staff will advise you on training, introductions with to other pets and family members, and can answer any other questions you might have.

Our Adoption Process

Due to COVID-19 adoptions will be by appointment only until further notice. If you are interested in setting up an appointment to meet one of the animals that you have seen online, please email our Adoption Coordinator, Monica Garren, at adopt@foothillshumanesociety.org. You can fill out and submit an adoption application with us in one of three ways:

  1. Complete our online Adoption Questionnaire
  2. Download our Adoption Questionnaire and return it by email or in person
  3. Complete one in person at your adoption appointment

Please allow 24-48 hours to hear back about your adoption application.

Please note of our dogs and cats live in foster homes, not at our adoption center. If you wish to meet any of these pets that are in foster homes we’ll be happy to arrange a visit!

Adoption Fees

Our adoption fees cover the cost of the pet’s spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworming, microchip and more as detailed below. At times, we charge more for puppies and kittens. These higher adoption fees helps us provide lifesaving services for the many lost, orphaned, and (sadly at times) neglected or abused dogs and cats that may spend months in our shelter while they await their forever home. We appreciate your merciful interest in adopting a shelter animal and look forward to helping you find your perfect companion.
