By adopting a cat
or dog, you're giving an animal a
new life. The adoption application
is available as a PDF below, or can
be picked up at our shelter.
Submission can be through mail,
email, fax or in person.
A Welfare officer will review the
application to ensure that the
potential adopter is a good match
for their animal. If everything
checks out, it's approved!
approval, you must pay the adoption fee- $75 for dogs and $65 for cats. This cost covers your pet's spay/neuter, microchipping and updated shots. The vet appointment for the spay/neuter and the shots can be arranged by the shelter, the shelter will even take your pet for you! Once the appointment has been finished and your pet is back, you're free to take them home.
Why do we require a spay/neuter?
One of the goals of the Lowell Animal Shelter is to reduce the pet overpopulation- spaying/neutering is the best way to prevent an unwanted littler. Both cats and dogs can have over ten offspring in a litter, and an unspayed cat may have two litters a year. The ASPCA estimates that there are over 70 million stray cats alone in the United Statesl don't contribute to that number.
See our Microchipping page for more information on why Microchipping your pet is the right choice.
