Pet Adoption

What We Do

Meet Our Adoptable Pets

Animal care is our top priority so we may not always be able to answer our phones. If you are interested in adopting a pet, please email adopt@lakehumane.org. You can also find a full contact directory on our website at https://www.lakehumane.org/who-we-are/contact-us/. Thank you for understanding!

We offer the opportunity to meet with pets at the shelter during public hours and by appointment. Our protocols are as follows:

  • Adoptions are available by appointment, and we accept walk ins when time permits. Please do not remove pets from their cages or kennels during viewing hours. If you are interested in an animal, please complete an online application which will be sent to our adoption counselors to help you set up an appointment time to meet the animal. Time permitting, we may be able to help you meet with an animal by walk-in, but we cannot guarantee it.  We offer paper applications, but online applications are preferred.
  •  All visitors must fill out an adoption application and be pre-approved before meeting with an animal. This can be done by emailing adopt@lakehumane.org or filling out and submitting the application on our website.
  • After pre-approval, an appointment will be set by our Adoption Counselor. Please let her know the names of the pets you are interested in meeting. During each appointment you may meet up to 3 animals.
  •  If a visitor is more than 10 minutes late or misses their appointment time, another appointment must be made. If an appointment is missed, Lake Humane Society cannot put animals on hold.
