Adoptions


Before being placed in adoptive homes, all Clay County Animal Shelter residents are:

spayed or neutered, vaccinated and wormed (dogs and cats).
tested for heartworms and treated, if positive, or started on monthly heartworm preventative (dogs over 6 months).
tested for both feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus (cats).


If you express an interest in adopting one of our residents, you will be asked to complete an application form (or this can be done over the phone).
Your application will be processed as soon as possible - adoptions are vital to our residents and to us!
The adopter's agreement with the Shelter is to keep the pet safe, loved and current on vaccinations and heartworm preventative.


All steps in the adoption process are aimed at making a good match between pet and adopter.




Your Chance to See Amazing Clay County Kitties "On Tour"

It's no Broadway production of CATS, but you can see - and even meet! - some of our Shelter's "best performers" at PetSmart on Lawrence Road in Wichita Falls. A select group of our adoptable kittens and adult cats live there temporarily and are sure to entertain you with their amazing feats of leaping, lounging, wrestling and grooming. It's the best show in town, and it's free! Should one or more kitties succeed in mesmerizing you, a volunteer is available most Saturdays between 1PM and 4PM to make introductions and discuss the adoption option. Please call the Shelter at (940) 538-6757 for more information or to ensure someone from the Shelter will be at PetSmart to assist you with "backstage" access.
