Adopting a Pet

We appreciate and applaud those who choose to save a life and adopt a pet! Rescuing a pet can be a very rewarding experience, and OAHS Staff is here to help walk you through each step of the adoption process.

It is our mission to secure 'forever' homes for the many animals that find themselves in our care. Animals, like the people who care for them, have their own personalities, likes, and dislikes. Because each animal is so unique, it is important for anyone interested in adopting a pet to complete the following steps to ensure the animal will be a good fit for your family:

  • Spend time at our shelter with the animal, and bring members of the family to participate in the bonding process.
  • Complete our adoption application.
  • Once approvaed, schedule a time to pick up your new pet and complete the adoption paperwork.

For your convenience, you can download our adoption applications below, then bring the completed form with you when you visit the shelter. Please note that e-mailed or faxed applications can be processed but not approved until you have visited the shelter and interacted with the animal you are looking to adopt.
