Our Adoption Process

Bring joy to your life by sharing it with a pet! When you adopt a shelter animal, you save two lives– the life of the cat or dog you adopt, and the life of the one who takes its place.

Are You Ready to Adopt a Cat or Dog?

Caring for a companion animal goes far beyond providing food, water and shelter. It also takes planning for expected and unexpected medical expenses. The average first year cost of owning a cat or dog is over $1,000 and $500 each year after. When adopting, you are making a commitment to care for an animal for the rest of its life—that could mean 10 to 15 years for dogs and up to 20 years for cats. Before adopting, consider the ways your life and circumstances could change such as moves, the birth of children, and new jobs. Are you prepared for your pet to remain a permanent part of your life?

  • Prefers home without cats
Florence and her buddy Frieda were found dumped on Quinn street. They came to us scared and hungry and were basically a mangy mess. They went into foster care and within just two or three days, really came out of their shell. They only had one accident in their kennel and they slept through the night from the start. Although Florence loves to run and play, she was calm for a puppy at her fosters home. She has since gained alot of puppy energy, however that happens sometimes being at the shelter. She loved to climb on the waterfall at her foster's home and really enjoyed chasing balls and playing with the rope toys. Florence would probably like to have a dog buddy and one a little older could help teach her some manners. She is such a good girl and would love to be out of the shelter in a home to call her own. Do you have a special place in your heart for this gem? Est. DOB: 5/2017, Weight: 30lbs.

Huff was found in a plastic container on Hufsmith . He looked horrible due to a skin condition. The good news was that he had Demodex mange that caused scabbing and hair loss, but was easily cured. He is an older guy with typical eye and ear issues but he is basically healthy. His hair has grown back and he looks great. He enjoys a nice bath but a little caution is needed when you touch his eyes or mouth. He loves to eat and will follow you anywhere for a treat. He enjoys short walks and sitting on your lap. He can be a bit grumpy if you do something he doesn't like, so he would be better in a home with loving adults. He has grown to trust the volunteers at AAR and he craves his very own home with humans that will truly care for him. Will you provide Huff with the love and care he did not receive in his previous home? Est. DOB: 2009 17 lbs.

My name is Jax. My mom was a stray who met a nice guy and a little later had my 3 brothers and I. I was the first of my brothers to be adopted when I was only 2 months old and my mom was adopted shortly after that. However, my home didn't work out and I was brought back. I am a sweet boy who just plays a little ruff. I am now a huge and strong boy who needs a special person who understands that I kind of still think I'm a kitten and play as such. Could you be the right person to help me play more gently and release that I weigh 10 lbs instead of 2 lbs.

I'm not too crazy about four-year I'd rather curl up with a warm person or maybe a little cat nip before bedtimd. I do love my catnip! I'm super affectionate, as long as you don't pick me up. I prefer feeling like I have a choice about sitting on your lap! Please take me home with you.
