Adoption Process

CO- coming soon kittiesIf you have room in your home and your heart for a loving, companion please consider adopting one of our kittens or cats, dogs or puppies. They would love to spend their life with you! All of the animals in our program have received age-appropriate vaccines, and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. All cats/kittens are tested for feline leukemia and FIV, and dogs are tested for heartworm if they are old enough. The adoption fees for our animals help defray the cost of these treatments and tests, as well as any other required veterinary services. On our Adoptable Animals page, you will find a list of Animals that we have available for adoption. If you see one you like, click on the photo and you can read about him or her on  If you would like to fill out an application for a Cat or Dog click the appropriate link below.  We regret that we do not do any out-of-state adoptions. Please note that completing an application to adopt an animal does not obligate you to adopt, nor does it guarantee that you will be approved to adopt an animal.  If your application is approved or we have additional questions, you will be contacted within five business days of submitting your application. P.A.W.S. adopts to homes that are best fits for our animals' needs, and not on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you currently own a pet or have a history of pet ownership, you must provide a vet reference for your application to be processed.  Preference is given to applications with prior pet experience and vet references. We are an all-volunteer organization, and regret that we do not have the resources to contact applicants who are not approved. Please do not contact us to check on the status of your application - it just slows down our ability to process applications. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.   P.A.W.S.
