Adopting a Friend from CHA Animal Shelter

CHA Animal Shelter has both dogs and cats available for adoption. All of our adoptable dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and have been examined by a veterinarian. The process includes just two short steps. 1) Complete an adoption application, and 2) meet with an Adoption Counselor to ensure we are sending you home with the right match.

To speed up the adoption process, complete the application below, sign, date, and bring a copy with you when you visit the shelter. Or, fill it out, sign electronically, and send it to

Hours: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, CHA Animal Shelter is currently closed to the public except by appointment. To schedule your private, socially-distant adoption appointment click HERE.

Can’t adopt right now? Sponsor a CHA dog or cat!

Animals in our shelter need all the love and support they can get. You may not be able to adopt at this time, but you can always Sponsor A Pet, so other potential adopters know that this pet is special enough to be sponsored! When you Sponsor A Pet, we send you a card with the pet’s photo and formation. A sign is then placed on the animal’s cage acknowledging your sponsorship. To Sponsor A Pet, click here.
