채택 애완 동물

애완 동물을 입양 할 때
당신은 생명을 구합니다

긴 서류 작업과 같은 장애물과 주택 및 소득에 대한 침략적인 질문을 제거하여 입양 절차를 단순화했습니다. 우리는 애완 동물을 원하는 모든 가족이 동물 복지 문제를 제외하고 애완 동물을 키워야한다고 믿습니다! 채택 절차는 다음과 같습니다.

Bring everyone from your household to the Waco Animal Shelter (roommates, family, etc.), including your kids and dogs, during operating hours. Remember that our last kennel walk-through is 45 minutes before we close!

Please note, if you come to the shelter without everyone from your household, including kids and dogs, we can walk you through the kennels but we will not be able to send you home with a pet. We need to make sure that the animal you choose is a good match for everyone!

Meet with a Pet Matchmaker. They will ask you about your home, family, activity level, and lifestyle, and then walk you through the kennels to see which pets interest you. Tell the Pet Matchmaker if there are specific animals that you saw on our website that you want to meet. 

The Pet Matchmaker will bring you to a play yard so you can meet each animal that interests you. They are experts in animal behavior and will be able to assess which animal is a good match.

Know that every pet is not right for every home. Just because you like a specific animal doesn't mean it will be a good fit. We match families and pets based on energy and personality, not on breed, appearance, and other baseless labels. If our Pet Matchmakers believe you are choosing a pet that is not actually right for you, they will kindly tell you why, and make other suggestions. For your safety and for the safety of the animals, we will not send an animal home with you that we believe is not a good match.

You will provide the Adoption Counselor with your email, cell phone number, and ID, and she will email you the adoption contract, which she will go over with you, and you will sign on your phone. 

Once the adoption is complete, we will take a photo of your family and your new pet to put on our Facebook page!

If your new pet is not yet spayed/neutered, they will need to stay at the shelter, and you can pick them up after surgery. 

This is the policy for both the Humane Society of Central Texas and the Waco Animal Shelter. Your animal cannot leave the facility without being spayed/neutered. You will not be able to take your animal to your veterinarian to have them spayed/neutered. Your animal will be attended to by the shelter's inhouse veterinarian. 

We will provide you with an escape-proof collar and sturdy leash to take your pet home, thanks to Greg May Honda! 

An Adoption Counselor will call you within a few days after adopting your pet to make sure everything is going well. She will be able to provide you with advice and direct you to resources if you need them to help your pet's transition into your home. Note that if you adopt one of our more challenging dogs, you may be offered professional training to ensure a smooth transition!
