Adoption Application
Please fill out this application to the best of your ability. We ask that you intend to care and provide for your chosen pet and in turn let us help you in making it a life-long match. We aim to make adding a new addition to your family an enjoyable experience for you.

PLEASE NOTE: A completed adoption application does not guarantee adoption or availability.

Animal House will contact you within 24 hours of submitting your application to inform you of the status of your application and the dog you are interested in. If you do not hear from us within 24 hours, please call the shelter at 970-224-3647.

If your application is for a dog residing at the shelter, a non-refundable deposit of $25.00 that goes towards the adoption fee must be paid to hold the dog while we process your application. We encourage you to stop by during business hours to visit or call us at 970-224-3647 after submitting your application.

If a dog is in foster care and your application is the first received for that dog, the foster family will contact you for a meet and greet upon approval of your application.

We do not permit the adoption of a dog for another individual. Adopted dogs must be intended as a companion for yourself and your immediate family and the dog must reside with you at your primary residence.
