Adoption

We're pleased you're here at the Cedar Bend Humane Society to choose a pet. Our goal--which we're sure you share--is to find a new, permanent and loving home for each animal.

Your answers to the questions on the adoption form will help us decide, with you, which pet would be the best fit. We appreciate you taking the time to fill this out; it will be reviewed with you by a staff or volunteer Adoption Counselor.

Please go to our Pet Finder page to see the lovable cats, dogs, and other domestic animals available for adoption.
