How Can I Adopt a Pet?
Anyone may apply to adopt an animal from our
shelter. Identification reflecting your current address must be presented
when filling out the application form. If you lease a house or apartment,
permission to keep a pet must be verified from the landlord. The adoption staff
may perform a house check before approving the application to ensure that the
pet being adopted will be in a safe and caring environment. Upon approval, you
are required to pay an adoption fee prior to taking ownership of your pet. For
more information, please call the Animal Management Division at 301-780-7200.
