Ready for a pocket pet?

There are several things to consider when adopting a small animal. One should consider individual needs, activity level, housing needs, etc. of a small animal to be sure it is the right fit for your family. You should also consider your own schedule, activity level, lifestyle, and finances before bringing a small animal into your home. We have several trained and knowledgeable staff waiting to assist you in the decision making process.

See below for additional information regarding our adoption process and policies. You must be 18 or over to adopt with a valid form of photo ID showing your current address.

What's Included?

Fees (sales tax included in price listed):

Small animals of any age – By Monetary Donation

By law, small animals (e.g. rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, chinchillas, reptiles, etc.) are not required to be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, or microchipped. We advise you to check with your state (if outside of PA) to determine if these laws differ once getting the pet home.

When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul.

What's next?

Once you know you are ready to adopt, you can begin to look around. The first step in our adoption process is to fill out our Adoption Application online or at the shelter. Application processing time can vary, but many of our small animals are able to leave with an adopter same-day. We ask for your patience and understanding during this time, as our number one priority is to find the right placement for our animals.

Once your application has been approved, you can then choose which small animal you’d like to make part of your family.

Please keep in mind that shelter spacing is limited, therefore we cannot hold any animal while your application is being processed or while you make a decision. Adoptions are processed on a first-come, first-serve, best-fit basis, and we reserve the right to deny any application for any reason.
