Why Adopt From Anderson Humane?
We believe that the human-animal connection has unlimited benefits for both people and animals. What better way to bring an animal into your life than adopting a pet in need of a home?
Anderson Humane has dozens of adorable adoptables and provides the information you need to find the best animal for you and your family. We also support you post-adoption with training, low-cost veterinary care, and other resources to help you establish a positive relationship with your new animal companion.
Adoption hours are Monday through Friday from noon to 6:00 p.m., Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You can check out our adoptable animals during these hours.
Our Adoption Process.
1. Visit Our Adoptables Pages
Peruse our Adoptable Animals pages. Note the ID number and location of the companion you are interested in adopting.
2. Email Us
3. We'll Book Your Appointment
Someone from our team will email you to book an appointment, discuss the animal you chose, provide more information, and help you determine if it is a mutual match. You will then be able to schedule your 60-minute in-person Adoption Counseling and Meet and Greet.
If you are interested in meeting a specific animal, you must schedule your appointment within 24-hours of your request to give our animals their best chance to find their forever homes.
4. Confirm Your Appointment
To confirm your appointment to meet with the companion of your choice, we request a $25 Adoption Appointment Deposit. This deposit will put the pet of your choice on hold for you and save your Adoption Appointment time slot!
5. Take Home Your New Companion
We will provide as much information as possible about your new companion. Our sources include previous households, fosters, and our partner shelters. Behavior varies from environment to environment, and we cannot guarantee that behavior will be the same in your home.
