Adopting our Animals
Good Shepherd Humane Society takes in and adopts out approximately 250 animals per year that otherwise would have been euthanized. The average stay for an animal at our shelter is just over 10 weeks.
Every animal that comes in receives thorough medical attention. They are housed in quarantine for a week (to be possibly claimed by their owner, as well as for health reasons); scanned for chips; and receive a complete wellness check. Animals are then given all necessary vaccines as well as flea and tick prevention. Finally, the pet is either Spayed or Neutered.
Our goal is to place each animal in a “Forever Home,” so we have a very thorough adoption process and a high level of standards for Adopters. The Shelter staff will recommend a dog or cat based on the Adopter’s home situation, including other animals in the household, and Adopters have the opportunity to spend time with suitable candidates to get to know them.
|Puppies (Under 6 Months) and Small Dogs (Under 25 lbs):
|Adult Dogs (Older than 6 Months and Over 25 lbs):
|Cats and Kittens
If you have any questions about our adoption process, please call the Shelter Manager at 479-363-1112.
What Our Adopters Say
"The staff was amazing from the minute my husband and I walked into the shelter. They helped us select the perfect cat for our household, which includes an older male cat. We were able to make multiple visits to make sure we and our match were well-suited. Never thought my heart would open this wide again for another cat!" - Karen M.
"Just picked up a 2-year-old Lab mix. I was nervous until I spoke with the wonderful staff and they did a great job of describing his personality!" - Chris D.
"Adopted the sweetest little kitty. Wonderful people." - Catherine P.
