About the Adoption Process

What are the steps to finding the perfect pet for your home?

  1. Find the pet for you at the Adoption Centercat_reaching.jpg

    Angels of Assisi’s adoption center is open from 12-6pm, 7 days a week. Adoption Specialists are eager to help you find the pet that would fit best in your family.

  2. Adoptable Pets in Foster Homes

    Some of our available pets are currently in foster homes. If an animal is currently in a foster home, it is noted in the animal's biography online. To meet a pet in foster care, please fill out a non-binding adoption application, and the foster parent will contact you to schedule a meet and greet once the application has been approved (generally within 24 hours).

  3. Found the perfect addition to your family? Now what?

    The next step is to fill out an adoption application. You can complete an application online (preferred) or stop by the adoption center to fill out a paper application. Adopters must be 18 years of age or older. If you rent your home, we will need to contact your landlord or see a copy of your lease to verify the pet policy. Most applications can be approved within 24-48 hours.

  4. Taking Your New Pet Home

    After paying the adoption fee and pending the approval of your application, you may take your new pet home immediately. Adoption fees are as follows (purebreds may be more):

    • Adult Cats: Free
    • Kittens*: $50 (two for $75)
    • Adult Dogs: $70
    • Puppies*: $200

    *Under 5 months of age.


    Pets for Vets: 25% off for active and retired military with I.D.

    Adoption fees may be paid in cash, debit or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover), or check.

    Adoption specials are routinely in effect and could reduce the adoption fees.
