20 years of animal rescue
Thank you for choosing to adopt, not shop! Here's some information on how to find your new family member from PAWS Animal Shelter.
Make an Appointment
You must meet the animals first before filling out an application. We set up dog Meet & Greets on a case by case basis and also require a phone pre-interview. Cats and kittens will be available for Meet & Greets on specified days. Please refer to our Facebook for more details and to see our available pets.
Submitting an Application
Applications will be accepted after your entire family meets the shelter pets in person and meets with an Adoption Counselor. We do not take applications online so please wait until you have met the pets to ask for an application. Filling out an application does not guarantee adoption and we don't have a first come first serve policy.
After You Apply
We do not offer same-day adoptions and we cannot guarantee adoption as there are more interested parties than available animals. The board will make a determination after reviewing all applications, keeping the shelter pet’s best interest and best fit in mind. Applicants will be notified if they have been selected or not.
Adoption Fees *subject to change
When pets are available for adoption, we will post them on our Facebook page. All details will be found on Facebook. Please refer to the process above if you want to meet them.
