Adopt a Pet!

You won't change the world by saving an animal, but you will change that animal's world. 

All Future Adoptees Must Have an Approved Application Prior to Adoption. 

Applications take 1-2 business days to process (Not including Monday or Tuesday).
We do not process same-day applications. The requirements are listed below.



The application must be completed in full. Missing information on the application will delay the processing time.

You must be at least 18 years of age. Picture ID may be requested for verification.

You must have a functional source of communication. Any questions about the application are typically emailed unless otherwise specified by the applicant.

We ask that you spend time with the dog or cat you are interested in before completing the adoption.

If you are applying for a dog and have a dog, a Meet & Greet will be required after the application is approved.

Cats (7 months +): $50

Pet Placement Center is a private, 501(c)3 non-profit. All donations made to the facility are tax-deductible and go directly to helping the pets in their care. 

Important: Dog visitation hours end at 4:30 pm to allow the staff plenty of time to prepare all the dogs for bedtime.
