ADOPTION LOBBY COVID-19 UPDATE: 4/11/21
- Up to twenty-Five (25) guest limit in the adoption center at a time.
- Once PRAS has exceeded the 25 person limit we will utilize a web based check in app (Waitlist Me) to notify each waiting guest through text message. **
- PRAS staff/designee is now taking temperatures / asking if they are experiencing any Covid-19 related symptoms. If temp higher than 99 degree and/or any symptoms you will not be permitted to enter.
- Masks/facial Coverings are required and should be worn above the nose at all times. If you do not have a mask/facial covering PRAS will provide you with one.
- Hand sanitizer or hand washing is recommended once entering the building.
- While visiting the shelter and remember to observe 6 ft. distance between people.
- We also ask that only those interested and ready to adopt a shelter pet the same day visit the shelter. You can fill out an Adoption Survey in advance. If you previously (within 30 days) filled out an Adoption Survey let us know when you come in and we will likely still have it on file.
- Thank you for choosing adoption, we look forward to seeing you soon!
**Reasonable Accommodations can be made if a guest does not have a working phone. This must be notified at time of check in.
If you do not currently own the residence or dwelling where you live, PRAS does ask that you bring your lease agreement with you. Adoption Success also means to make sure where you currently live allows you to have the animal in question. This also gives our adopter’s a chance to verify if there are any additional pet fees, breed restrictions, weight limits, and pet # limits allowed where they are living that they may not have been already aware of.
Once you enter the building and know you would like to meet with an animal we will add your information to our adoption meet and greet que and provide you with a pager. While you wait you can continue to walk around the facility the pager will buzz one we have someone from our adoption team ready to meet with you.
Our Adoption Lobby is open to view adoptable animals until 5:00pm. PRAS does stop meet and greets with animals at 4:00pm.
We appreciate your patience as we navigate these pandemic waters together.

Want to know how we evaluate an animal’s behavior before it becomes available for adoption? See our video about behavior assessments and volunteer opportunities.
Are you looking to add a furry (or not so furry) member to your family? Well you have come to the right place; we have dogs, cats and “pocket pets”! The animals on the adoption floor can change daily so checking our Petango website or coming in to look is recommended.
What is the adoption process?
Once you have seen an animal you are interested in, you would need to complete an adoption survey and meet with an adoption counselor. During your "Meet and Greet" the adoption counselor will have you interact with the pet, ask questions and discuss any special requirements. You must be 18 years old with a valid I.D. to complete the adoption contract.
Complete the adopter survey and let us know the name of the animal(s) you would prefer to meet with in this survey https://airtable.com/shrjr93VuPuTw82r4.
Do we put animals on hold?
We will only put a hold on animals in certain circumstances, which include allowing another family member or pet to meet the animal, or if we need additional documentation from you.
If you bring your dog in to do a meet and greet, we need to see a current Rabies certificate.
Do we do same-day adoptions?
Yes! If you rent, we need to see the pet addendum of your lease or permission from your landlord.

Every adoption comes with spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccines including rabies, heartworm test for dogs, FIV/FELV test for cats, initial deworming, microchip with registration and any current medications.
Can I bring my animal back for follow-up veterinary care?
Our veterinarian provides medical care for the shelter animals only. We encourage you to establish a relationship with a local veterinarian. To help you find one, we include a list of participating clinics in your adoption folder.
Are you a qualified pet trainer?
Pet training and new owner education are the keys to a successful pet adoption. To support new adopters as they learn about their new companions, the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter (PRAS) is reaching out to see how you can support adopters as pet trainers in our communities. The PRAS promotes Positive/Rewards based training. We are growing a list of qualified pet trainers, and what discounts or free initial support trainers are willing to provide our adopters. This list will be available on our website, our Intake/Reunite lobby, and in our adoption folders. If you are a pet trainer interested in supporting successful adoptions of shelter animals, please fill out and submit this form to the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter.
