Step 2: Meet Adoptable Pets

View the Contact Us page for directions and hours. Please check our Petfinder listings before visiting to confirm the animal you are interested in is still available.

Step 3: Fill Out the Application

Hard copies of adoption applications are available at our location. You can also download the application (PDF: cat | dog), print it, and bring it with you to the shelter for adult dogs and cats and kittens.

For dog/puppy applications, please read the profile of the dog/puppy you are interested in. If the profile says that the dog/puppy is at the shelter, you *MUST* apply In Person at the shelter. If the profile says that the puppy is in Foster Care, you must apply online by sending your completed application to

Applications are reviewed by a trained adoption counselor to ensure you are a good match for the animal. This process can take up to 72 hours.

Step 4: Pay the Adoption Fee

Adoption fees may be paid by cash or credit card. Small Miracles is a private, nonprofit shelter with 501(c)(3) status. We rely on adoption fees and donations to fund operations. Donations over the cost of the adoption fee are tax deductible.

Step 5: Welcome Your New Pet Home

Adopted cats must go home in a carrier. If you don't have one, you can purchase a cardboard carrier for $5. Small Miracles provides adoptive families with a sample bag of Hill's Science Diet dry food, which pets in our care are used to eating.
