Adoption Policies:

  • All adoption fees are paid directly to the Humane Society of Jefferson County and must be paid in full before any animal can be adopted.
  • All animals at HSJC will be spayed/neutered PRIOR to adoption. We will not make any exceptions.
  • All current or previous animals of the applicant MUST be up-to-date on their annual vaccines and have a history of routine yearly vaccinations. This is to ensure that our animal will receive proper Veterinary care after adoption. We require a vet to be listed if the applicant has had animals in the last three(3) years.
  • We require a meet & greet with all current household dogs for all of our adult dogs to ensure they will get along and can be fur-friends.
  • We cannot hold any animal without a deposit. A deposit places a hold on that animal for a certain amount of time so the applicants can have meet & greets, get prepared for their new animal, or if the animal has not been spayed/neutered yet and therefore cannot go home, this allows the applicant to hold them while they wait for surgery day. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
  • In order to adopt, you must show proof of residency. You must provide either a lease for a rental, mortgage statement, deed, or land taxes. *If renting, your lease must state pets are permitted and if a deposit is required, you must provide a receipt that you have paid the pet deposit. (Any county/state)
  • HSJC does NOT adopt out to homes who want to keep the pet outside only. A pet should be part of the family.
  • All cat/kitten(s) must be in a carrier before leaving our facility. You will need to bring your own pet taxi or purchase a cardboard cat carrier at our facility.

*The Humane Society of Jefferson County reserves the right to refuse adoptions to anyone for the protection of our animals – they are our top priority.*

Adoption Process:

  1. Meet and interact with the animal(s) you are interested in adopting. Ask questions to make sure that pet is the perfect match for your family and lifestyle.
  2. Fill out an adoption application.
  3. Adoption counselors will check all applicants against all registries and contact the applicant’s Veterinarian for a reference.
  4. If approved, you will then pay the adoption fee (varies per animal).
  5. Fill out and sign the adoption contract.
  6. Adoption counselors will register your new pet’s microchip for you (if applicable).
  7. When the animal(s) is spayed/neutered and up-t0-date on vaccinations, the animal can then go home. Pets do not leave HSJC if unaltered unless it is a foster-to-adopt where the animal will be returned on a specific date to be fixed.
  8. Remember your adoption day with a picture!

We recommend all adopted animals be taken to one of our participating veterinarians (Lakeway Animal Hospital, Town & Country, Animal Wellness, Ridgefield,  or White Pine Animal Clinic) for any additional vaccinations.

We want to help you choose just the right pet for you and your family. Please take a look at our adoptable pets then c’mon in for a visit. We would love to help you. Feel free to read some adoption tips from the ASPCA.

The Humane Society of Jefferson County is happy to work with any local, regional or national group. In order to assure that Rescue Groups are legitimate we do request supportive information.

Required Documentation:

  • Proof that the group is a nonprofit or affiliated with a nonprofit.
  • A copy of the group’s adoption guidelines and adoption contract.
  • A letter identifying the veterinarian with whom the group works.
  • A list of persons authorized to act for the group.

General Rules

Animals entering the rescue system must be removed in a timely fashion. Animals will be made available to other rescue groups or individuals if not promptly picked up.

Once the animal is in the care of the rescue group we provide no further services.

Animals in the care of the rescue group may not be returned the HSJC except for behavioral or medical problems verified by a veterinarian. The rescue group must realize for these animals euthanization is a very likely outcome.

FEES for Rescue Groups

Fees for each rescue group are evaluated individually. Every effort is made for the HSJC to recover costs and it is a requirement that all animals be spayed or neutered.
