How to Adopt

Adoption FAQs

How do I prepare?

We recommend that you research what breed of pet best suits your lifestyle. You then want to make sure you have food, bowls, bedding and litter ready for your new pet.

What do I bring with me?

Your pet must leave with a collar and leash for dogs and a carrier for cats. You will also need to provide your photo i.d.

What do I do if I have problems when I take my pet home?

Please contact the Lee County Humane Society if you have any questions or concerns about your pet’s health and behavior. We will work hard to put you in touch with a veterinarian or obedience trainer to smooth the transition.

How much is an initial veterinarian exam?

Several Lee County veterinary clinics offer a free first office visit for animals adopted from the Lee County Humane Society if you bring your new pet in to their clinic within 7 days of adoption.
