Adopt A Pet

Adoption process

To adopt a pet from Union County Animal Services, please visit the shelter during our hours of operation.

We are open 1:00pm – 5:00pm Monday through Friday and 10:00am – 3:00pm Saturday, closed Sunday. Visit with the animals, spend time with the animal you are interested in making sure they are the right fit for your family. Once you are ready to adopt, we do same day adoptions. You will need your driver’s license and $85.00 cash, Visa or MasterCard.

You will sign a contract stating the animal will be spayed or neutered within 6 months of adopting, if not already completed. The $85.00 includes a well check and spay or neuter at one of our approved vet offices, along with the first round of shots already given.

There are no refunds, so we would like you to be sure of your choice and spend as much time as you need with the animal. We also encourage adopters to bring their children and let shelter staff know if they would like to introduce their current pets to a potential new pet.
