Adoption Forms

Feel free to download our adoption questionaire by clicking here and bring it with you when you come to adopt.

You can also fill out your application online: CAT or DOG. Once you have filled this out, please email [email protected] and let our counselors know what pet you are interested in.

The process is simple: come in and allow us to introduce you to our adoptable pets and spend some time with any pets in which you are interested. Our adoption counselors will work with you to make the best match possible with one of our pets. Please make sure to bring a photo ID. If the adoptable pet is not yet spayed or neutered, we will schedule their appointment with our spay/neuter clinic located in Evington, VA.

We have dedicated staff who will help you choose the right match for your family. Please let us know what your needs are and we can help you find find happiness through adopting an LHS pet.

Placing a pet on ‘hold’: We want your adoption experience to be as pleasant and stress-free as possible. We allow potential adopters to place adoption holds on pets in order for them to make arrangements to get to LHS, prepare their home for the new pet’s arrival, take their time making adoption decisions, and to introduce family members and other pets. Holds may be placed over the phone, via email or in person, and in the case of a “tie”, the individual physically visiting the shelter and the pet will be awarded the first hold. 

1st hold: $35 per 24 hours
2nd hold and beyond: $20

Hold fees are non-refundable and are not applied towards the adoption fee.
