Ready to adopt your new best friend?

Thank you for considering adoption of a shelter animal. There are so many homeless pets waiting for a forever home, and every person that chooses adoption helps to make their dreams come true. Falling in love with a pet is easy and pet ownership is very rewarding; but bringing a pet home is a big decision. Dogs and cats require a lot of time, money, and commitment. Al-Van is excited you are considering adding a shelter pet to your family. We will gladly help you find the pet that is the best fit for your lifestyle and home – that’s our job, and we love it!

At Al-Van, the adoption process starts by you completing an adoption application. Talking with our Adoption Specialist regarding your wants and needs, discussing any other pets you may already have in the home, and assuring your living arrangement allows for the type of pet you are looking for, is all a part of the adoption process. There is plenty of space to meet our adoptable animals at our adoption center. If you don’t find the perfect match at first, please check back as we receive new animals to the shelter regularly.

Please specify name of animal you are interested in

Things to consider when adopting a new pet.

Why do you want a pet?

It's amazing how many people don't ask themselves this simple question. Adopting a pet just because it's "the thing to do" or the children have been wanting a puppy can be a mistake. A pet is a long commitment - 10, 15, or even 20 years.
