We take good care of the dogs, cats, and other animals in our care; what they really need is a loving home with you and your family. Visit the Lorraine & Don Fair animal adoption center at our shelter today to find the perfect companion animal. We will do our best to ensure the right fit and a smooth transition.  

All of our adoptable animals are up-to-date on all age appropriate vaccinations, spayed or neutered, de-wormed, de-flea and microchipped before adoptions are finalized. All dogs over six months of age receive a temperament assessment by our Certified Professional Dog Trainer to ensure appropriate placement. Also, many animals in our care receive basic obedience training to improve manners and increase adoptability.


Adoption Fees:


Senior Dogs (Over 6 Years of Age): $50

Adult Dogs: $125

Puppies (6 months or younger): $175



Kittens (up to 6 mos): $75 each or 2 for $100

*The 2-for special is good when the two felines are going to the same home and adopted at the same time.

*Senior to Senior Program: Adopters age 60 or older may adopt a dog or cat, 3 years or older and will only pay $15 of their adoption fee. This service is made possible through the Pets for the Elderly Foundation. You will be asked to provide proof of age.

Adoption Profiles

Before adopting an animal, we have you fill out a quick adoption profile to find out which of our animals would fit best in your home and family. You may fill out the profile ahead of time to save yourself some time when you arrive at our shelter. Just download one of the following profiles. Fill out and print the profile and bring it in with you. You may also fax the profile to us at (330) 487-0365. We keep all adoption profiles on file in the case that you don't find your new best friend on your first visit.

Our organization uses 24PetWatch microchips which include free registration into the 24PetWatch pet recovery database. All adopted animals also come with 30 days of pre-paid pet health insurance courtesy of 24PetWatch Pet Protection Services. A valid email address is required and must be written on your adoption application. All adopters (regardless of if they provide an email address) are eligible for an $8.95 credit on the first month of a 24PetWatch Pet Insurance policy. For more information on these services, please visit or call 1-866-597-2424.
