We believe that pets and people belong together; that financial circumstances alone are not reliable indicators of the capacity to love and care for a companion animal.

Adopt A Cat

Adopt A Dog

When  you take a look at our dogs or cats online or arrive at one of our adoption events,  you'll be asked to fill out an Adopter Survey.  This one-page survey gathers information about your expectations of pet ownership and helps us determine which animals might best suit your lifestyle. Based on the results of the survey, you'll be assigned a color to help guide you to cats or dogs that best meet your expectations.  

Please Bring:

  • Picture ID with your current address (if current address not available, please bring current utility bill).
  • Proof of age (you must be 18 or older to adopt a pet from Pet Central Helps!)
  • Proper form of payment (cash, credit/debit card, money order). Checks are not an accepted form of payment.
  • A carrier for your adopted kitty or a leash for your adopted dog.
