Adopt a Cat from our shelter.  Create a new friendship that will last a lifetime.
         Your new best friend is here waiting for you!

Please choose the adoption option. Saving a life is priceless.
                               Encourage everyone you know to do the same.

*Please Note: If you become approved to adopt from us and choose to commit to a certain animal that at the time is too young to adopt or may still need vaccinations or adult may need to have a spay/neuter preformed, we will accept a deposit to hold the animal for you until he/she is ready to go home. Please know that if you change your mind or if your circumstances change and you are no longer able to complete the adoption, these deposits are nonrefundable. The amount of this "HOLD FEE" varies, is set by Shelter management and depends on the animal in question.    

The Adoption Process:

When you decide to adopt an animal from Forest County Humane Society and if you are at least 18 years of age you must:    

Fill out an application and meet the animal you wish to adopt.   

If you rent please bring a copy of your lease or written approval from your landlord.

After completion of an application, time will vary because we are very short 
 staffed.  If you submit your application on a phone, sometimes it does not go through.      
Click here for our application form...Please do not mail in an application because by the time we get it, the animal may be gone.

All ADULT cat adoption fees include a spay/neuter, a 4-way vaccine, flea and tick medications and a round of de-wormer. It also includes the remaining amount of FVRCP vaccinations if they are needed. If you are approved to take home a feline, please bring along a cat carrier at your time of pick up!
