Adoption

Adoption Policy

All of the animals coming into our shelter will be treated with care and kindness, and will live in a positive environment, including kennel enrichment, exercise, socialization and even games, but what they really need is you! Please come meet our wonderful animals and we will help you to find the companion animal that best fits your needs. We offer same day adoptions to approved adopters. Our goal is set you up for success and become a resource for you. The adoption team will meet with you and help with all ownership questions you may have. If you have already identified an animal that you are interested in, please submit a completed Adoption Application to animalservices@qac.org or drop it off at the shelter.
