What You Need to Know

Adopting a Pet is a lifetime commitment. Please take the time to research what type of pet is best suited to your lifestyle. You will notice that some of the dogs on our website have specific adoption requirements. These restrictions or requirements are placed out of genuine concern for the animals in our care and in consideration of any potential adopters.

Adoption is open from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. daily. Phone lines are open at 8:00 a.m. daily.  Adoptions stop half an hour prior to closing. Please note that each animal has a reference number – when referring to the pet you are interested in, please refer to this number. The adoption process can take up to a few hours, so please ensure you have enough time to enjoy the experience of finding your new Forever Family member!

Anyone wishing to add to their family will be required to fill out an adoption application.  Please stop in to the shelter or download our Adoption Application here and email it to t.redfern@ptbohs.com.
