How Does the Adoption Process Work?

We believe in an open, non-judgmental adoption process.  We try to match a person’s pet expectations so fewer pets are returned.  Under normal conditions the process is:

  • Come in with your family and look around.
  • If you see a pet that you like, ask staff to meet the pet (if the pet is available to be taken out).
  • Complete the adoption questionnaire.
  • Review the information we have on file about the pet and his/her past experience.
  • Finish the process by having a conversation with our adoption staff.
  • Sometimes we need to have the entire household meet the pet.
    -Usually, if a dog is going into a home with another dog, they will need to meet each other prior to adoption.
    -If the pet is not yet spayed or neutered, he or she will have to be fixed prior to adoption.

*Please note that all animal meets will stop being conducted a half hour before we close daily.

Adoption Programs

Can't Buy Me Love Program

The Can’t Buy Me Love adoption program was introduced to help find homes for animals with certain age, health or behavior challenges by waiving their adoption fees. This program allows adopters to devote more resources to training or medical care for the pets who need some extra special attention or extra support to transition into their new homes.

Best Friends Program

The Best Friends program allows adopters to take home two best friends for a reduced adoption fee!  When you adopt a cat of any age, you can bring home a “Best Friend” (cats 1 year and older only) for just $25. Both cats must be adopted at the same time, by the same person, and deemed to be compatible with each other by adoption staff.

Pets for Patriots Program

Pets for Vets Program

Seniors for Seniors Program

Rules

  • We will not adopt a pet to anyone under the age of 18.
  • We will not adopt to anyone under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • We reserve the right not to place a pet in a home based on the information we have or if we feel the pet is not a match for the person’s lifestyle.

AWA may reduce or waive adoption fees for a variety of reasons:  Too many cats or kittens in the building, older and special needs pets that have a harder time finding homes, etc.  From time to time, we run adoption promotions.

We strive to match people with pets that fit their lifestyles. Part of our mission to take care of the animals means taking the time to find loving and responsible homes.

We have a wide selection of cats, dogs, rabbits, and small animals. If you don’t see the pet you’re looking for, we encourage you to continue to check regularly.

Due to the number of animals that we receive and find homes for every day, we can not guarantee that specific animals listed on our site will be available when you visit.  We can not hold animals via phone, fax, or email.  The best way to find a new furry companion is by visiting us in person. After all, you might be about to meet your new best friend!
