Pet Adoption


At Pets Alive, you will find some of the most wonderful pets you’ll ever meet.

Please take your time to browse through the photos and descriptions of pets available for adoption, found in the links below.

Our adoption team are “matchmakers” and will spend the time with you to help you determine which pet(s) fit best in your home environment.

Thank you for caring and for choosing a shelter pet to be your next companion!

How to adopt

Our website is updated every 4 hours, so our listing of available pets is kept current.

Submitting an online application before visiting, while not required, does make the process smoother. You must complete an online or paper application (found below) before meeting any adoptable pets.

Cat Adoptions

We offer a few options for meeting our cats and kittens:

  • We recommend you set up an in-person appointment.
  • You can drop by during our regular hours 7 days a week (10:00 am – 4:00 pm ET). There may be a wait outside as we limit the number of guests in our cattery (Brick House) at one time. Please ring the doorbell or knock on the door, and the cattery staff will assist you.
  • Set up a virtual meeting with a few of our cats using Facetime. If you’d like to meet some of or more shy cats, this option is a great way to see what their personality is like with our staff!

Dog Adoptions

We offer a few options for meeting our dogs:

  • We recommend you set up an in-person appointment.
  • You can drop in Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, or Wednesday between regular business hours (10:00 am – 4:00 pm ET). We are closed to dog adopters on Tuesday and Thursday. Please come to our main kennel area – there may be a wait in your car until our adoption staff is available.
  • Set up a virtual meeting with a few of our dogs using Facetime.

What does your adoption fee help cover?

All our feline and canine friends are spayed/neutered, microchipped, have age appropriate vaccinations, have been dewormed, given flea preventative, our cats are tested for FELV/FIV, our dogs are heartworm tested and of course, they have been lovingly cared for by our amazing staff and volunteers. All of this costs money. Adoption fees don’t even begin to cover everything we do to get your new beloved family member ready for you.
