LCHS believes in an adoption approach that considers important details for finding the right fit, such as a person's home, interests and lifestyle. We then match those with an animal's social, exercise and training needs.
Because our animals live with foster parents who volunteer their time and whose lives are full of work, family and school, our adoption process can take anywhere from a day to upwards of a week.
We hope you will agree that while our process can take a bit longer than others, the investment is worthwhile when it allows you to talk with a person who has lived with, cared for and loved the animal you are considering adopting, allowing you to make an informed decision — and make a lasting match!
Each situation, adopter and animal requires a different approach. And while we reserve the right to refuse an adoption, we always make every effort to work with you to address concerns or find the most appropriate companion animal.
Please Note: In general, LCHS does not adopt pets to persons living outside our service area.
