Adopting a Pet through Charlton Animal Control

Charlton Animal Control does not currently have an adoption program. Instead, we work with local shelters that accept our unclaimed dogs and cats into their adoption programs. The shelters do age appropriate vet work prior to putting the animals up for adoption. Charlton Animal Control will occassionally post animals available for adoption on our petfinder site as a courtesy and thank you to the assisting shelter. Contact information for the shelter that has the animal is provided so please read carefully. For a list of local shelters, click here and thanks for adopting a homeless pet!

Adopting a friend

Charlton Animal Control's goal is to reunite pets with their owners. However, some pets are not claimed. We work with local shelters to find placement options for the dogs and cats that are left in our care. Check our Petfinder Adoptable Pet List for information on each pet available for adoption.
