Adoption Overview

What to expect when adopting at the League

Choosing your next companion

The process of choosing the family’s next companion animal is not something that should be rushed or taken lightly. Forever is a long time and our goal is to find all of the animals in our care their “Forever Homes.” Our trained adoption counselors will use their skills and knowledge of the shelter animals to match you and your family with an appropriate cat or dog for your home. We encourage you to spend time in our adoption rooms with your whole family and the animal of your choosing so that you can get to know a little more about your choice.

If you need a little time to consider your options we offer a courtesy one-day hold. During that period the animal will be held for you. We do ask that you notify us of your decision as soon as you possibly can. Remember while an animal is on hold they could miss another chance for adoption.

The League shelters approximately 80 cats and 40 dogs at any given time. It may take several hours or even several visits to make a final adoption decision. At minimum, a cat adoption will take around an hour, and a dog adoption may require an hour and a half of your time. Please plan your visit accordingly. While not required, if you have another dog at home we strongly advise bring the dog(s) to the shelter to meet the potential new dog you selected on your first visit.

If you rent, it is our policy to check with your landlord to determine the acceptability of your choice. Please bring along your landlord’s name and phone number.

We accept cash, checks and Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express as methods of payment for the adoption fees.
