If more than one person, is at the shelter when we open for the same animal a lottery will be held, with all interested parties. The winning number will be pulled at random and that person will have first opportunity to adopt the animal. If there is more than one of the desired animal, than a new number will be drawn until all the animals have been spoken for. No one person may adopt more than one of the animals, unless there is no one else waiting.

$10.00 Adoption fee

Once you have selected an animal:

Adults Animals-

A Carrollton Animal Service Officer will deliver your new pet to a veterinarian of your choosing, within the Carrollton city limits to be altered and receive a rabies vaccination. You will then pick up your new pet from the Doctor's Office and take him/her home to enjoy a wonderful life with him/her. The cost of the procedures is the responsibility of the adopter

Puppies & Kittens-

If the Animal is under four months of age, the adopter would sign a contract agreeing to have the animal altered and recieve a rabies vaccination by a specified date (when the animal is four months old). The cost of the procedure and the vaccinations is completely up to the adopter .

Altered Animals

In some cases an animal may have been altered by a previous owner. If this is the case the animal will be delivered to a local veterinarian to recieve a rabies vaccination. The adopter would then pick the animal up form the veterinarian's office.
