Small Animals

At HSSW, you'll find a variety of dogs, cats, and rabbits just waiting for a family like you. Please review the information below to learn more about our adoption process. 

The Adoption Process

Step One: Viewing the Animals

Adoptions are completed in person at our adoption center. Animals can be viewed online or in person during regular hours, Tues-Sun, Noon-6:00 pm. Guests arriving to meet a specific animal should proceed to the adoption counter when arriving to speak with a member of our team. We do not offer wait lists or holds for pets. 

Step Two: Meeting the Animals

You may request to meet up to two dogs or cats during your visit. Adoptable dogs (excluding puppies) will need to meet all individuals and other dogs who live in the adopter's household. To allow time for the adoption process, we are generally unable to accommodate adoption socials after 5:30 pm.

Step Three: Submitting an Application

If you're ready to adopt, the final step is to complete an application. An adoption counselor will be available to assist with any additional questions you may have as you finalize your adoption.

Adoption Promotions

Your next adoption could be even easier with adoption promotions - view our current promotions below.

  • Discounts for Military Service

    It's our way of thanking those who have sacrificed. Every day, active-duty and veterans of US Military service receive 10% off adoption fees. 

  • Seniors for Seniors | Adoption Fees Waived

    Adoption fees for senior pets (age 7+) are waived when adopted by a senior (age 62+). It's our way of bringing a little extra joy to our community and help more pets find loving homes. 

More Information

Pets Available for Rehoming

Rehoming services help pets find new homes without entering the shelter. To support rehoming in our community, HSSW is proud to partner with Home to Home. See a listing of pets currently seeking new homes in our community on our Home to Home listing.

Please note: the animals listed on Home to Home are not resident animals at HSSW. To adopt a pet listed with Home to Home, you must first register and then may contact the pet's owner to learn more. We are unable to provide any additional information or facilitate adoptions for pets listed on Home to Home.
