Adoption Policy

The Culpeper Humane Society adopts to residents of the state of Virginia, Washington, DC and parts of Maryland. We WILL adopt to residents who live outside our usual radius IF your local humane society (or Shelter) will conduct a home visit and act as our agent in case the adoption proves to be less than perfect or you are no longer able or willing to provide for the animal. This is for our animal's safety net to ensure the animal is returned to us IF you will not transport back to us. In addition we would require 3 personal references. All are dependent on your state laws for owner surrender.

It is our policy NOT to adopt to applicants with intact (unaltered) pets. If you agree to get your pets spayed/neutered, after the fact, we WILL adopt to you. This is our continuing effort to ensure the control of the animal pet population, and prevent animals from entering the Shelter. There MAY be extenuating circumstances (eg, a 16 yr old senior dog or cat that is too aged to be altered). We make these considerations on a case by case basis.

It is not first come, first served, but rather the best possible home for each particular pet.
