Make an Appointment!

All adopters must have an approved application before they can meet our animals or bring a pet home. Once your application is approved, ACSKC will give you a call to schedule an appointment! During your appointment, you will meet one-on-one with our Adoption Coordinator who will show you the pet(s) you’d like to adopt! Fill out our fast and easy application here.

If you do not have an approved application already on file at the time of your arrival at ACSKC, please be prepared to:

Provide proof of ownership of your home OR proof of landlord’s approval to have a pet; and
Provide proof of up-to-date rabies vaccination status for all pets currently living in your home.

What to Bring

  • Leash (collars are provided)
  • Blanket for your dog to lay on during the trip home
  • A carrier, crate or seat belt to keep your dog safely restrained and keep you from distraction while driving home

    Note: If you are adopting a dog and another dog(s) already lives in the home, they must be present for the meet and greet.

Please bring a carrier with a towel or blanket.
