Adoption Process

Before visiting with any animal, the Humane Society of Greater Dayton asks that potential adopters complete an adoption application. After we have received the application, we will gladly assist you in meeting the animal you are interested in adopting. If the application is approved, the animal is ready to go home the same day. However, if needed, we can hold the animal for you until close of business the following day. Please note that if you do not own your home/condo/apartment, we will need to either speak to the owner/landlord by phone or see your rental contract with pet policy before adoption.

Begin the Adoption Process
Please note: After submitting an adoption application, we recommend that you follow-up with the shelter to ensure they have received your adoption application from Petango. The shelter’s contact information can be found in the left hand column. Thank you.
