ADOPTING A KITTEN

As kittens become available for adoption, they are posted online to collect applications. If you are interested in adopting a kitten through SHAID:

  1. Download the kitten application and email a completed copy OR fill in a kitten application at the shelter. If you would like to adopt 2 kittens, they must be the same gender as they are not yet neutered/spayed. 

  2. Play the waiting game! Our staff works hard tending to the animals and combing through emails from many lovely families looking to adopt fur-ever friends. Please be patient! It takes us a few days to organize adoptions.

  3. If you are the chosen applicant, you will receive an email making arrangements to meet your new kitten and take it home! 

  4. If you are not the chosen applicant, try again! Save your completed application, continue checking our Facebook page for available kittens and email us when you see one of interest. 

CATS OVER 6 MONTHS OLD DO NOT REQUIRE AN APPLICATION, VISIT THE SHELTER WHEN YOU ARE READY TO ADOPT.

THIS APPLICATION IS FOR KITTENS ONLY.

 

ADOPTING AN ADULT OR SENIOR CAT

Cats older than 6 months are available on a first come, first serve basis and DO NOT require an application. Our Facebook page is updated daily with cats as they're ready for homes but you're always welcome to pop by the shelter and see who we have! Staff will conduct a short interview on site to ensure the cat is a suitable fit for the potential adopters. If it seems like a good fit, there is some paperwork to fill out before you can bring your forever friend home!

PLEASE NOTE: We understand some people travel to SHAID for certain animals, however, we do not put holds on adult cats that are available for adoption. ​If there is a cat you're interested in, you must be the first person at the shelter for that cat on the day the cat is available.

ADOPTING DOGS

When dogs arrive at SHAID Tree Animal Shelter, we give them ample time to decompress as we learn about their traits, needs, and quirks. They are spayed or neutered, vet checked, vaccinated, mircochipped, and treated for parasites. Once we have a good understanding of the animal, they are posted on Facebook and our website as adoptable! After collecting applications, we chose the best match for the dogs needs, complete a background check with the listed references and, if all checks out, we will set a meeting with you and the dog. If it feels like a good match, you take the dog on a foster trial for a week or two to test the waters and we will finalize the adoption following the trial.
