Adopting a Dog

Our Dogs

Second-hand dogs make first class pets.

If you’re looking for a new best friend, look no further! Our shelter has big dogs, small dogs, fluffy dogs, and sleek dogs. We have loyal dogs, kind dogs, brave dogs, and gentle dogs. 

They’re all wagging and waiting for that one special person who’ll notice something special in their hopeful eyes.

Getting Started with Adoption

Ready for sloppy kisses and games of fetch?

  • Check out our Facebook page for info on some of our favorite pets.
  • Search on PetHarbor or Petfinder using zip code 77504.
  • Complete an application.
  • Make a list of pet names while you wait to hear back from us. It can take us up to three business days to process an application. And please, check your voicemail and junk email folders for a response!
  • Schedule an appointment to visit so we can maintain adherence to social distancing standards. As of May 18, 2020, an appointment is required to adopt.
  • Visit us! Next door to the Animal Shelter (at 5150 Burke Road), we also have an Adoption Center.

In the event that you don’t hear back within three business days about an application, please email us at adoptions@pasadenatx.gov.
