Adoption Information

Our goal is to help you to find your perfect match, and to give our shelter pets the best possible chance of finding a safe and loving home that meets their individual needs.

Here’s what to expect when you adopt a pet:
1) Complete and submit your online adoption survey
2) A member of our staff will review your information and contact you to schedule an appointment. Because many of our adoptable pets are in foster care, appointments are encouraged, but walk ins are welcome too!
3) Your appointment will include a conversation with an adoptions counselor and ample time to visit the pet of your choice or one of our other our adoptable pets.
4) Once you have made the decision to adopt a pet, we will reserve him or her for you. If your pet has had a recent bath and wellness check by our veterinarian, you can take him or her home the same day! In other cases, we will need to arrange pick up a day or two later. Our goal is to send you home with a healthy pet!
5) You’ll receive an adoption bag full of food, toys, and treats to get your new best friend started. In addition to having the support of our staff, you’ll receive information (and coupons) to help your new pet adjust to his or her new home.

After You Adopt:
Keep in touch! Please call us if you have questions or need advice. We love to get emails, letters, and photos of former shelter pets who are living happily ever after in their forever homes!

“Shelters and rescue centers can be pretty chaotic and stressful at times. However, HSGKC has always greeted me with a smile (I could tell even with masks), an “awww cute!”, and excellent care for my new dogchild. These experiences have motivated me to provide monetary donations at time of adoption and once Tilly’s heartworm treatment was complete – although all the donations in the world can’t demonstrate how grateful I am to you all! I look forward to continuing to support your mission for the benefit of so many animals just like Tilly.”

I’ve adopted a cat and a dog from this humane society, and I cannot say enough good things about them. Professional, caring, understanding, and truly helpful. They want the best matches they can find for their pets, and really care about giving them a good home. They also sell all of their cats for the same price and all of their dogs for one price. A great place and adoption experience!
