"If having a soul means being able
to feel love and loyalty and
gratitude, then animals are better
off than a lot of humans."- James Herriot



Adopting an animal is easy. Picking just one isn’t. 

Adopting a pet at KCHA is a simple process.  Our friendly Adoption Counselors will help you identify animals who fit your family’s lifestyle. 

  1. To adopt, you can browse animals online or in person at KCHA.  After you’ve found one (or more!), ask an Adoption Counselor about its availability, known history, personality, likes/dislikes, and more.
  2. Then, you’ll need to complete an adoption application. An Adoption Counselor will review your application and ask you a few questions.
  3. Once approved, we’ll help you finalize paperwork. 
  4. Next, we deliver your new pet to a veterinarian for spay/neuter. 
  5. Pick up your pet from the veterinarian, and enjoy!
