Adoption Forms

We ask anyone interested in adopting a pet from LHS to please complete our adoption questionnaire in order for our team to get an idea of what you are looking for, and also ensure that we are making the best possible match for you and the pet. You can fill out your questionnaire online: CAT or DOG , or in person at LHS on a paper form. If it has been a while since you have completed a questionnaire, we may ask you to update your information on a new form.

The process is simple: The Center for Pets has moved to scheduled appointments to better serve you in finding the best match with one of our adoptable pets!

Please make sure to bring a photo ID in order to complete the adoption process.

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 granted 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.
