By visiting this page, you have already made the responsible decision to ADOPT, and we are thrilled you have chosen HHS to help you find your new BFF.
Before you visit the shelter, we hope you will consider the following points:
Am I ready for a pet?
Keep in mind that adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment. You should be prepared to care for
this animal for its lifetime (sometimes 12 - 15 years or more!)

What pet will fit your lifestyle? Consider your schedule, hobbies and basic outlook on life. Do your homework and pick
a pet that fits with YOU!
Will you be a responsible pet owner? Your pet will not only need unconditional love and affection, it will also need
companionship, exercise, a healthy diet, regular trips to the vet and other essentials. You will also be responsible for
obeying all community leash and licensing laws for the municipality in which you reside.
