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.

Because adoptions are not considered an essential service for purposes of the Governor’s Order, we are asking the one million residents in the cities we serve to come together and help us by opening your hearts and homes to animals currently in our shelter.  We need people who would like to open their homes to a furry friend in need!


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). Please view all available animals at the shelter. When you find your match, complete an Adoption Application. 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). 

*Please note: All pets are on a temporary stray-hold period before becoming available for adoption to allow pet owners to reunite with lost pets. Animals with no identification remain on hold for 3 days and animals with any identification (ID tag, microchip, etc.) remain on hold for 5 days.**

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. 

An Adoption Counselor will contact you to make an appointment to visit our shelter.

Because animals are adopted every day, the one you may be interested in may or may not be available when you request an appointment, so please keep that in mind. This gallery is updated on a daily basis in order to keep it current with new arrivals. 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.
