Where to adopt a pet in Washington County

Our staff works hard to reunite lost pets with their families. If no owner comes forward, adoptable animals are moved to partner organizations with robust adoption programs to find new homes. For these reasons, we are not offering pets for adoption at the Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter.

There may be times when we make an animal available for adoption due to a special circumstance, such as when a finder wishes to adopt a pet they brought to the shelter after no owner comes forward.

If you are looking to adopt a pet, we recommend checking with other area shelters to see if they have animals available for adoption. You can also check out Petfinder or talk with friends or family who might know of an animal looking for a home.

Adding a new dog to your family? Be sure to license them!
