Thank you for choosing to adopt from the Perry County Humane Society. We are a 501(C)3 nonprofit, no-kill animal rescue. Your cooperation and time invested in completing this comprehensive application and questionnaire in its entirety are genuinely appreciated. This allows us to match/place
the proper pet(s) with the right family in a much-needed responsible, forever loving home. Please remember, an improper placement or one in which impacting details were not disclosed on an application may end tragically for the new pet. Therefore, please include and verify all information for
accuracy before submission.


At PCHS we strive to have a 100 mile adoption radius and are very proud that we are a no-kill shelter. For this reason, if you are unable to keep your newly adopted pet(s) you will be required by law to return the adoptee(s) to the Perry County Humane Society. In the past, we have had issues with newly adopted pets not being returned due to distance and they were unnecessarily euthanized. We want to prevent this occurrence. Even now, unfortunately, not all shelters are no-kill facilities and 64% of all animals that end up at these shelters are still put to sleep for lack of homes. So, if you feel distance will become a factor for compliance (should placement not work out as planned and you must return your newly adopted pet to us) consider please adopting from a shelter closer to your residence. Remember completing the application accurately, in its entirety, and considering all involved variables prior to the adoption of your new pet is a must. Adopting is a lifetime commitment. Tail wags, and kitty hugs await a loving responsible forever home - so get that good pen ready, grab a cup of hydration and - LET THE ADOPTION PROCESS BEGIN !
