Adoption Process

What’s the pet adoption process?

Identify a pet you’d like to meet at the shelter, fill out an adoption form, and meet with Customer Service to complete the adoption.

Pets at the Shelter: Please visit the shelter during our normal business hours (Noon – 7pm Tuesday – Saturday) to visit a pet.

Pets in Foster: If a pet’s location is “Foster Home”, call (541) 672-3907 x111 or email, and we will schedule you an appointment to meet the pet at the shelter.
