Adoption Policy

At the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter, we strive to help you find the best match for your home.

The first step to adopting any animal begins with a simple application. Applications can be filled out ahead of time, or you can complete them in person at the shelter. This application will help staff get a quick snapshot of your home, lifestyle, needs/wants for a new pet, etc.

From there staff uses their knowledge of the current population to give you suggestions and help you select the right pet.

We have meet and greet yards on-site where everyone can be introduced in a neutral space. While we strongly encourage family meets at YVAS, we do not require them for cats.

If you rent your home, be sure to verify your pet policy. We will need a verbal confirmation from your landlord that cats are approved pets for your residence.

Applicants must be at least 18 years or older. After you’ve found the right pet and have an approved application, then we make it official! The adoption paperwork takes about 30 minutes. For this final step, we will need a photo ID, adoption fees, a few signatures, and you’re set.
