Lesley’s FAQs

What is Animal House Shelter’s adoption process?

All adoption donations MUST be in cash, money order, traveler’s check , cashier’s check or by VISA, DISCOVER or MASTERCARD credit card only. NO PERSONAL CHECKS PLEASE. You must be at least 21 years old to adopt. All members of the household must be present, including any other dogs you may currently own, in order to do a final adoption (cats do not have to come to the shelter. We will cat test here because we know how stressful it is on the cats to be transported). Dogs and cats that you currently own must be current on distemper & rabies vaccinations prior to visiting the shelter or any adoption. Fill out the Online Application and submit. We do not allow anyone to put a pet “on hold”, no exceptions. Adoption Donations for dogs & puppies ranges from $100-$500 (each individual profile will state the adoption donation) Adoption Donations for cats & kittens ranges from $50-$250 (each individual profile will state the adoption donation) At time of adoption an adoption counselor will take you through the process and answer any questions you may have, as well as ask you questions regarding the adoption. We have adoption hours 11am-7pm Mon, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sun. Tues adoption hours are 11am-4pm. Sat our adoption hours are from 9am-7pm. There is no appointment necessary. We are always open during the same hours on holidays. We microchip, spay/neuter, heartworm test or FeLV/FIV test and give vaccinations to all animals. They are also all on Heartgard Plus & Frontline Plus every month while in our care. We do require that when you adopt one of our cats/kittens that they are taken home in an appropriate carrier. You can bring in your own carrier or we can supply you with a cardboard carrier for $10. Please Remember, all other dogs and family members must be present at the shelter for any final adoption. The website is always kept 100% up to date with who is currently available and all new animals (40/week) are added to the site 2 weeks before their availability date to give you time to fill out your adoption application and get the family ready to come out to the shelter that day. As soon as they are adopted, they are moved to the Adopted Pets page so if they are still listed on the Adoptable Dogs page, they are still available. So keep any eye on the site for any animals being added as available for adoption as new animals are added everyday! I would recommend if you haven’t done so already that you submit a general online adoption application with us so it is on file for when you are ready to come out and adopt. The adoption counselors will be able to show you many that would be a good fit for your family. We do go in order of when you submitted your application with us. So it is always best that you get your general application for any dog in with us as soon as possible. Here is the link to the Adoption Application:
