How to Adopt


When you decide you are ready to adopt an animal from the WCHS, and you are at least 18 years of age, the following takes place:

  • You come in and fill out an application in person. If you own a home, please bring proof of home ownership with you. Proof should be a mortgage coupon or tax bill which must have your name and address on it.
  • After completion of an application, you are required to wait 24 hours, which allows us time to verify your information, and also provides you, the potential adopter, time to be sure you are ready to give the animal a permanent and loving home.
  • During those 24 hours we check with your landlord/verify your home ownership and verify your vet records.
  • After adoption we follow-up on the animal to ensure you have followed the terms of the contact you signed and check to see if you have any questions we can assist with.
