Adoptions

You Can’t Buy Love. But You Can Adopt It.

To our supporters: Like all of you, we are taking every step necessary to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Along with following the Center of Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines on how to prevent the spread of the virus, we urge all of our supporters to adhere to these guidelines as well.

IS A NEW PET RIGHT FOR ME?

If you wish to Adopt…

We offer Pet Adoption or Foster-to-Hold (fostering one of our long-term available pets in the comfort of your home until they can find a permanent family). All Adoptions/Fosters will now be handled in-person. We invite anyone interested in adopting/fostering a pet, to click the link below to view the animals currently in our care.  You can also see additional pets available for adoption in our community via Home To Home™, an IVHS animal re-homing partner (click the Home To Home™ tab below to learn more). 

We have switched to a hybrid adoption system. Appointments are available Monday – Saturday 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM and are available up to a week in advance. Please indicate the animal ID of the available animal. Note: An appointment DOES NOT guarantee an adoption.

As a reminder: Not all animals at the shelter are available for adoption. Many have recently been rescued and are on hold awaiting reunification with their owner and or may be under protective custody. Please inquire with a Staff member regarding the animal you are interested in.

Schedule Appointment

If you do not have a specific animal in mind, please come in during our walk in hours, Monday – Saturday from 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM and Wednesday from 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM.

If you wish to Foster a shelter pet…

If you are interested in fostering a pet that qualifies for our Foster-to-Hold program, complete a Foster-to-Hold Application. Pets that fall in this category are pets that have been in our care longer than 2 weeks. 

Because animals are adopted every day on a first come, first serve basis, the one you may be interested in may or may not be available upon your arrival. This gallery is updated regularly in order to keep it current with new arrivals and adopted or redeemed pets. We encourage our community to consider fostering a pet they find, so that we can maintain room at the shelter for animals in need. If you choose to foster a found pet, an IVHS officer will come photograph the pet to add them to our Available Pets Page.
