Adopting an Animal

The Mae Bachur Animal Shelter takes in hundreds of animals each year. Each of these animals needs food and shelter while they await the next stage of their lives:  adoption. The staff at the shelter works diligently to match each animals with a suitable home. Much of that work is done with the animals themselves, including teaching basic manners, housebreaking, and socialization.

The shelter also works to ensure prospective adoptive families are a good fit for the animals they want to adopt. All adopters must complete an application and provide two personal references. Typically, the full adoption process takes two to three days to complete.
