How To Adopt

Are you interested in adopting a dog or a cat?

First Step

The first step is to fill out an adoption questionnaire. You can find a link to the forms on each pet’s bio.  This form and a consultation with a Fayette Humane Society volunteer are designed to help you find the cat or dog most compatible with your lifestyle

Be advised, the Fayette Humane Society believes that it is in the best interest of our cats and dogs to adopt them to families where they will live indoors so they can truly be part of the family.  Cats and dogs are social creatures and thrive on companionship, and we feel it is important for family member to spend quality time with each other.

Which do I choose?

You can find a terrific selection of cats and dogs waiting to meet someone just like you right here on our website.  If you find one you love, please put his or her name in your pre-adopt questionaire.

Or you can come to our Adoption Events to meet the pets in person and talk to our volunteers.

If you still aren’t sure which pet is right for you, our volunteers love playing matchmaker!  They’d be delighted to hear from you at info@fayettehumane.org.

What happens after I apply?

After we look over your application, we will talk with you on the phone about the pet you’d like to adopt, and tell you more about any of his or her personality.  Then, we will do background vet record check and/or a home check.  A home check is done by a Fayette Humane Society volunteer in your area; it helps ensure that the pet you’re selecting is the right fit for you.
