No appointment is necessary for you to meet our adoptable cats and dogs unless it is an animal in foster care. Just come in during our visiting and adoption hours, Tuesday through Saturday, 11:30 am – 6:00 pm, and Sunday, 1:00 pm – 6:00pm. Please allow for one hour for an adoption during our business hours. If you need to do a dog introduction, please schedule it with our kennel manager prior to bringing in your dog.  You can spend time with a dog in our Real Life Room, and upstairs with cats at MCPURRS.

Also, you can see adoptable dogs and adoptable cats on our website.

An adoption counselor will meet with you to chat about your home environment, lifestyle and the type of pet you would like to add to your family. Once you meet your match, you’ll complete an adoption contract, review the pet’s medical history and pay your adoption fee. 

Interested in adopting? Please fill our our adoption questionnaire and email it to Christa:

The ASPCA provides a great Meet Your Match Survey for people to complete as they consider adding a dog or cat to their family.  You do not need to complete the survey in order to adopt a MCPAWS animal, though it is helpful for you to review as you consider your home environment and lifestyle.
