It is important that the APPLICATION AT BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE is filled out in its entirety. The adoption application is fairly extensive, and whether you fill out a paper application or the form below, an incomplete application could delay the adoption process. Normally it will take approximately 7-10 days to hear from us on the status of your approval once the application is submitted.
A key part of the application process is your previous veterinarian information. We ask you provide vet information for pets owned in the last 10 years and the individual's name the account was under.
Finally, there is a 100 mile adoption radius. Anyone adopting from PCHS who for any reason has to relinquish the animal, by law, must return the animal to PCHS. We have established the adoption radius due to past instances where distance prevented an owner from relinquishing an animal back to us. In some cases animals were unnecessarily euthanized.
The adoption fee includes the following: spay or neuter, microchip, flea preventative, heart worm preventative, and all updated shots. This fee is paid when picking up your new pet. If adopting more than one animal, the adoption fee is half price.
The adoption application is fairly extensive, but we do it that way to ensure that the pet and owner are compatible. You can click on the link below to begin the application process, or download the PDF file, fill it out, then bring it in to us. Once again, we ask you fill out the application in its entirety to ensure a speedy review process and response.
