*Adoptable pets may not be available at all stores.
Note: We recommend coming to the shelter at least an hour before closing if you intend to adopt a pet.
Let Petco store associates be your post-adoption support network. Petco's Welcome to the Family New Pet Parent Starter Guide provides new pet parents substantial benefits with hundreds of dollars worth of coupons for everything a new pet needs. And our Petco store partners will be there today, and every day, to answer all those new pet parent questions and make sure every adoption is a successful one.
We do reserve the right to conduct a home visit or a background check in order to be sure that we are placing the animals in the best homes for their needs. In the majority of cases, however, a pet can be taken home the same day that he or she is adopted. All dogs must leave with a leash and a collar purchased by the adopter either at our facility or elsewhere before the pet is taken home.
Pets can also be adopted through sponsored by PetSmart Charities.

Families or individuals who would like to add a pet to their household are encouraged to visit our shelter to see if a cat or dog staying with us will be a good match for their lifestyle and home. After at least one visit to the shelter, if you find there is a pet you would like to bring into your home, potential adopters can fill out an adoption application. When all criteria are met, adopters can take their new cat or dog home with them that same day. All donations will be used for caring for and rehabilitating our rescued dogs and cats. Adopt-A-Pet is a non-profit, tax-deductible community service organization. Please provide a current email so that we may send you a thank you.Your local shelter is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality — all waiting for a loving home.
