Fostering pets is a huge way to help save lives in our community. Give a temporary home to a pet in need and help them find their permanent family!
How to Adopt
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!
Prior to adoption, all SSHS pets are:
Spayed or neutered
FIV/FeLV tested (cats)
Heartworm tested (dogs)
