Adopt

Dog Application

Please read the following before filling out this application. The entire process will take about 20-25 minutes, so please be prepared ahead of time. Thank you.          
Filling out a profile (application) online for an animal will save you a lot of time with the adoption process. However, once you are approved, it does NOT guarantee you that particular animal. Adoptions can only take place AFTER you physically meet an animal and are also 'approved' to adopt. Adoptions are done on a first come, first served basis here at the shelter, again after meeting the animal. It does not matter when you filled out the paperwork, whoever is first in line with an animal that they feel is a good fit, will have the chance to adopt first. (If they have not filled out an application, they will have to do that right then and there to be approved. If an application has already been filled out online, submitted, and approved, the complete process will go must faster.)

I have seriously considered all aspects of owning a pet and I am aware of the time and money involved. I am prepared to make a commitment to the pet being adopted for it's lifetime. BAHS has the right and responsibility to assist in helping me select a pet that is well suited to me and my lifestyle. I understand that completing this profile is not a guarantee that I will be allowed to adopt a pet.
