A pre-adoption form is required prior to adoption to ensure that the pet is a good match for the adopter. Adopters must agree to the terms and conditions on the adoption form. If at any time the adopter no longer wants the pet, they must agree to return the pet to MCHS.
All pets must be neutered prior to going home. No exceptions!!
Some people are surprised to find that adopting a pet is a more involved process than they anticipated. At the MCHS, our goal is to match potential adopters with a pet that is best suited to their home, interests and lifestyle.
While we reserve the right to refuse an adoption, our staff makes every effort to work with potential adopters and help them find their perfect match here at our shelter. Please allow at least one hour for the adoption process.
Don’t be discouraged if you don’t find the pet you are looking for on your first visit. Adoptable pets are dropped off at our shelter daily. Please keep visiting us and check our website regularly to find your new best friend!
Off site adoptions take place at Petsmart in Martinsville for cats, any time the store is open. Puppies and adult dogs are brought to various PetSmarts (Including Martinsville, Greenwood, Plainfield, and Bloomington) on Saturdays for adoption.
