Requirements for Adoption

Minimum Requirements for Adoption

  • Must be at least 18 years of age with a valid U.S. government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license or state issued identification (ID)
  • Must have Landlord / Property Owner Approval
  • No history of animal cruelty
  • Must sign an agreement acknowledging that they can spend the time and resources necessary to provide the training, medical treatment and proper care for the pet

Pre-Screening for Visitations

Potential pet adopters must complete a pre-screening application before meeting any of the animals outside of their kennel or cage. The pre-screening will give the Linda L. Kelley Animal Shelter a better understanding of the potential adopter’s expectations for a pet, lifestyle, and the environment in which a new animal would be placed.

Once the pre-screening application has been completed, the potential adopter will be matched with a member of our staff to review the application and help you find your potential match.
