Our adoption program

One of the most important aspects of Circle of Friends Animal Shelter is our adoption program. The pets sheltered at our facility need a second chance. They are not second-hand, second-best, discounted or free. They are invaluable as loyal companions and beloved friends who deserve our respect and devotion. Our goal is to place each of our pets in permanent, loving homes.

Interested in adopting?

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Must be 18 years of age or older
  • Must provide a photo ID (such as a driver’s license, or state ID)
  • If you rent, please provide a copy of your pet policy

Here are a few things to consider when trying to choose the pet that’s right for you:

  • Breed
  • Age
  • Size at adulthood
  • Temperament and personality
  • Activity level
  • Behavior and medical concerns

At Circle of Friends Animal Shelter, we have on-site adoption staff available to help you find the perfect pet match for your family and home.

Here’s how the adoption process works:

At Circle of Friends Animal Shelter, we embrace the concept of “adopters welcome.” We encourage and welcome you through our doors, and will gladly assist you with any questions you may have about any pet that interests you.

We will set up an on-site visit for you and the pet to get to know each other. Our adoption counselors will help you to get to know the pet’s personality based on what has been observed at the shelter. Should you decide on adoption during the visit, our process is done the same day. This means the pet can potentially go home with you once the visit, contract, and payment have been completed!
