Adoption Information

The information on our website is always up-to-date. If you have any questions about any of the animals listed for adoption, please contact us!

What is the process to adopt a pet from Homeward Bound City Pound?

Visit us during our adoption viewing hours to see if we have a pet available that you may be interested in. After you find a suitable pet, you will be required to fill out an adoption application, either online or in person. Please fill out an application only once you have met the animal you’re interested in.

We will interview you when you are at our facility to determine if the pet you have selected is a suitable match for your household and lifestyle. All members of the household must meet the pet, including canine members, before an animal can be put on hold or approved for adoption.

Once it is determined that the animal in question is a good match and that the pet has been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and micro-chipped the adoption arrangements can be made. (These veterinary procedures will not apply to rodents or birds or animals with a pre-existing medical condition). Please understand that this entire process may take several days.

If you do not see an animal that interests you during a visit to our facility, please come back as often as you wish during our viewing hours or check our website for updates on which pets are available.
