Adopt

Please visit the shelter to complete an adoption application. If approved, an adoption fee will be collected. Scroll for more information.



There is an $85 adoption fee for cats and a $95 adoption fee for dogs. The shelter can only accept checks and cash. Exact amounts must be provided for cash payments.

Once the paperwork and fee have been collected, new owners will pick up their pet(s) from the Animal Hospital of Cornelius at a later date as all adopted pets must be up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and spayed or neutered.

Tuesday - Friday: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.  3 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Appointments are available upon request.
