Responsible Pet Adoption
Before deciding to adopt a shelter animal, you should be sure you are ready for the responsibility.
Many animals will require time to adjust to a new home and a new family.
DVHS requires an application for pet adoption, which is reviewed by DVHS staff. We will contact
the references you provide.
Shelter life is stressful, and some animals can exhibit poor behavior as they make the transition
from life in a shelter to life in a home. However, most of these problems can be overcome as the
animal learns about the new home. A bit of commitment at this critical time will yeild long-term
rewards as the animal becomes a loved family member.
DVHS lists adoptable animals on Petfinder. If you want to search for that perfect pet, there's a
