Thank you for your interest in adopting a dog from our shelter. We screen our applications and strive to find the best fit for our dogs and your household. Our screening steps include confirming home ownership, landlord permissions, vet references and fence pictures (if required). Having all information entered correctly helps our volunteers to easily complete the screening process and keeps your application in the queue – very important if we receive many applications for your selected dog.

I am 18 years or more of age. I agree the animal I am adopting will reside in my home as a pet. It is solely my responsibility to provide adequate food, water, shelter, training, affection, safety and medical care. SPCHS is in no way liable or responsible for any damage, accident or injury resulting from the placement of a dog into my household and I/we agree to indemnify and hold harmless SPCHS and its officers, members, and/or agents from any claims for damages arising from actions of a dog adopted by me/us. SPCHS may in the future contact us to check on the dog adopted. If for any reason, we are no longer able to provide a home to the dog adopted through SPCHS, we shall immediately notify them of the situation and make arrangements to return the dog to SPCHS.
