Frequent Questions

I'm a renter: Can I adopt a pet from the shelter?

Yes, but we need to know that it's okay with your landlord.

All adopters who rent, lease, sublease, or live on property owned by someone other than themselves, including family members, must produce a written copy of an agreement allowing an animal. If deposits are required, proof of payment or agreement to pay must accompany the lease.  WCHS will not adopt out a pet without this documentation.
