Adoption Process

The adoption process at Pet Network:

Thank you for considering adoption! Pet Network's staff is committed to help find the perfect fit for your family.

If you find an animal you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application. Adoption applications are processed in the order they are received. Our staff will review your application and contact you within 24 hours to discuss next steps. In the meantime you are welcome to visit the shelter during normal business hours to meet any of our available animals.

Note: Animals listed on our website are available for adoption but may have potential adopters who are in line to adopt after placing a hold on the pet.

If you are interested in placing a hold to secure your place in line to adopt, please complete your adoption application. After your virtual or in-person with our adoption staff you will be able to place a $10 hold fee. Hold fees can be paid over the phone with our staff or in person during shelter business hours.

Considering adopting from out of the area? We can offer a virtual meeting via Google Hangouts, FaceTime, or Zoom to get to know the pet before making the trip to our shelter. (We recommend placing a hold to ensure the pet is still available between now and your appointment.)

Once you’re ready to move forward with your adoption, our staff will give you all of your new pet’s records, share tips and tricks for acclimating your pet to their new home, and finalize the adoption contract.

Pet Network's highest priority is making sure that each of our animals is placed into a caring and loving home. Our staff works to not only match people to pets, but also the pets to their potential adopters. We will work with you to find the perfect fit for your family!

Pet Network has created an adoption package that is very valuable to both you and your pets.

Each adoption at Pet Network comes with:

  • The animal is spayed/neutered
  • Each animal is vaccinated (appropriate to age)
  • Each animal is microchipped and the chip is registered automatically at the time of adoption
  • Each animal adopted comes with a either a yearly discount on pet insurance or 30 days of pet insurance depending on the adopters location.

What does this mean to you? It means that each adopted pet comes with more than $1,100 of "extras" AND you get to save the life of a special animal in need!
