The adoption of a new pet should be a carefully thought out process. 

 

Adoption from an Animal Shelter is an option that few people take.  There is in fact only a 10-15% adoption rate at most shelters.  If you decide you are ready to adopt please don't forget your county animal shelter.  We would love to see our animals get good homes.

 

We ask that you read over the following "Pet Owners Pledge" and ponder the responsibilities of pet ownership.

 

After deciding that you are ready for this new challenge, you must decide what pet is right for your lifestyle.  The area in which you live is always a factor.  Is your residence large enough to house the animal you choose?  Do you need an indoor or outdoor pet?  Should it be small or large?  Should it be short haired or long haired?  What items will you need to care for this pet?

 

The adoption procedure at the Stokes County Animal Shelter is as follows:

 

Stray animals are held stray animals are held for 3 working days (72 hours) to enable the owner an opportunity to claim their pet.  At the end of the holding period, adoptable animals are placed up for adoption. We do not have a medical staff at our facility and therefore, we are not able to guarantee the health of animals adopted from our shelter.  We highly recommend having your new pet examined and deemed healthy by a veterinarian.  We also recommend having your new pet spayed or neutered to eliminate the over population of unwanted stray animals.
