Our goal is to find a new, permanent, and loving home for each animal. Our adoption counselors are trained to help you find just the right animal for your needs.

As you begin the search for your new pet, please fill out the adoption application online or print out the application, complete it, and bring it with you on your next visit. There are adoption applications available at the humane society also. This will help us recommend pets that best fit your needs. Your application will be reviewed by an adoption counselor.

To adopt a pet from the Cedar Bend Humane Society you must:

  • Have a valid identification with your current address.
  • Have the stability and the means, (financial and emotional) to care for the pet for the rest of its life. This could be as long as twenty years.
  • Be 21 (and have proof). If you are not 21, the head of your household (parent, guardian) must be present to sign the adoption agreement, or be reachable by phone to consent to the adoption.
  • If you live with others, they must be with you, or reachable by phone, so we can confirm the pet is welcome in your home.

Completing an application does not place a “hold” on a pet, nor is it a guarantee of adoption. All applications are subject to approval.

Our adoption center is open Tuesday through Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We are closed on Mondays.

We look forwarding to seeing you!
