Adoption Process

The adoption process at Pet Network:

Pet Network Humane Society is temporarily operating with following adoption process: 

  1. Fill out an adoption application by clicking on the animal of interest under "Find a Dog" Or "Choose a Cat".

  2. You will be redirected to Adopets to complete the application process. 
  3. Our adoption staff will contact you to discuss the pet you are interested in 

    • Please allow 24 hours for an adoption specialist to contact you.  If you do not hear from Pet Network in 24 hours, please call 775-832-4404 x. 100
  4. Set up a virtual meeting with our animal care staff over the phone or video chat using google hangouts or facetime

  5. Fall in love

  6. Schedule an appointment to complete adoption paperwork and pick up your pet


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!


If you find an animal you are interested in adopting please fill out an adoption application. Our staff will review your application and contact you regarding any questions or concerns we have. You will then need to (if you haven't already) come in to meet the pet you are interested in in-person.

While an application is needed to complete an adoption, the submission of the application does not guarantee you will adopt this animal.  In order to reserve your spot in line for a particular animal, you must place a 24 hour hold on the animal for a $10 fee. In order to place a hold, please contact our adoption specialist by email or phone. Hold fees can be paid over the phone with our staff or in person during shelter business hours. 

Once your application is approved and you have met your new forever-friend, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract.

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!
