Pet Adoption Application

Welcome to the Clay County Animal Shelter! We are glad you are considering adopting from our shelter. The following information is requested for Shelter Staff to assist you in the selection of a new pet. This process is designed to help us assist you in finding an animal that is most compatible with your lifestyle.

To be considered as an adopter, you must:

  • Be 18 years of age, or older

  • Have identification, showing your current address

  • Have the consent of your landlord in writing (if applicable)

  • Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide medical treatment and proper care for pet.

**Please be advised, there may be a minimum of 3 days processing period for your request**

I'm looking for a:
Would this be the first time you have had a pet?
Why do you want to adopt a pet? (Check all that apply)
In a 24-hour day, how long would the pet be left alone at a given time?
The adoption of a lifelong animal friend should not be impulsive, but rather a carefully thought- out decision, which will ensure a loving, lasting relationship. Knowing you are applying for a lifelong companion, are you willing to make the commitment in time and in expenses to care for and property manage your new pet?
Where do you currently live?

Thanks for submitting!
