Adoption Special: Adoption Fees Waived this Saturday, May 5 Only!

Come and Meet the Newest Member of Your Furmily, Courtesy of BISSELL Pet Foundation!

Thanks to our generous friends at BISSEL Pet Foundation, all dogs, cats, and critters’ adoption fees will be waived on Saturday, May 5! All AHS adoption locations will participate in BISSELL Pet Foundation’s Empty the Shelters event.

Things to know beforehand:

  • Be prepared to wait in line, possibly outside. Bring plenty of water for yourself, as well as water and booties for your dog if you bring him or her along to meet potential new furmily members.
  • If you bring your dog for an introduction, vaccinations must be up-to-date. Dogs should have received most recent round of vaccinations at least five days prior to visiting.
  • Check pet requirements. If you have a specific pup in mind, please check their requirements regarding dog or child intros before coming to meet them. All adoptable dogs can be found here and can be filtered by location. Please note that adoption locations may change early in the morning, and these pages are updated every hour.
  • Limit two meet n’ greets per household. We want to make sure that everyone has a chance to meet our adoptable pets! If interested in more, we kindly ask that you go to the end of the line.
  • Limit two adoptions per household.
  • We cannot hold pets. Adoptions are first come, first served.
  • For dogs: Must have or purchase appropriate leash and collar at time of adoption.
  • For cats and carriers: Must have or purchase appropriate carrier at time of adoption. $5 cat boxes are available for purchase.
