Adoption Program

Do you have questions about pet adoption?  Check out:  The Ultimate Guide to Pet Adoption (Homeoanimal.com)


To ensure that animals find permanent, loving, responsible homes, the staff at the Snake River Animal Shelter will spend time getting to know the potential adopters. We want the best match for the animals and humans involved. All applicants will be asked to complete an Adoption Profile to help place the animal in a forever home that is compatible with its needs. If applicants, looking for a dog, already have a dog(s) then we STRONGLY recommend a meet and greet between dogs before adoption is finalized.


Must be at least 18 years of age with a valid Drives License

Provide proof of residency (ex. Utility bill)

If renting home, approval from landlord via phone call (we have the right to request written proof from landlord and/or request home visits pre and post adoption)
