Adoption Process

The first step to adoption is selecting a pet you are interested in. To view our adoptable pets, you can visit the shelter during our open hours, or view our pets online on our Animals Available for Adoption Page. We encourage you to stop by during normal business hours to do a meet and greet by bringing in your animal and / or family. 

Application Submission

Once you have selected a pet you would like to adopt, you will need to submit an application for adoption of the pet. 

Application Review

After the application has been completed, staff will now begin to review your application to make sure the pet you have applied for is a good fit for your home and family. We do have a maximum of a 24 hour reservation hold. This hold may be longer depending on the status of the animal or your application. Our goal is to make lifetime placements into loving fur-ever homes. We do this by focusing on the individual animals personality and needs as well as the adopters expectations of the pet, their lifestyle, living situation (housemates, children, other pets) and ability and desire to care for the pet that they have chosen. During this time, we will also make sure the animal is up-to-date on all of his/her shelter provided medical work such as vaccinations, parasite control, spay/neuter, as well as prepare a custom adoption package, before sending your new pet home.

Application Accepted

Once all checks have been completed, and your new pet is ready, shelter staff will contact you by phone. Once you arrive, staff will review the adoption packet with you, collect the adoption fee, and assist you if you have any further questions or concerns.

Animal Departure Procedure

Some things to consider:

  • We accept cash, check or card. 
  • All dogs must leave with their own correctly fitting collar and leash. Shelter staff can assist you in sizing the collar. Old Drum & Friends Animal Shelter does not offer the option to purchase collars / leashes on site.
  • The shelter does reserve the right to refuse an adoption if we feel it is not in the best interest of the adopter or the pet. In these cases, Old Drum & Friends Animal Shelter staff will notify you that the adoption has been canceled and may discuss alternate pets that may be a better match.
