How to Adopt

Illustration

We want to make the process of adopting a new pet as stress-free as possible.
Feel free to come in to the shelter during adoptions hours just to look around. If you see a dog or cat you may want to take home, let one of our adoptions counselors know and we'll have you fill out a brief application and talk over the adoption process and details of the pet. Most pets go home the same day!

Ready to Adopt?

Adoption policies and procedures are the same for both Homewood and Matteson locations. Adoption procedures vary at PetSmart partner stores. Please call each store for more information. 

    Please make sure to bring a valid photo I.D.
    Although not required, family members and pets are encouraged to visit the shelter to meet a potential new pet
    All adopted dogs must leave the shelter with a leash & collar for purchase here at the shelter.
