Questions to Ask at an Animal Shelter

No matter if you are going to an animal shelter to adopt puppies or a kitten or if you need to give your dog or cat to an animal shelter because you have come into hard times, you need to make sure to ask plenty of questions. You can find information about animal shelters through the Humane Society or another non-profit foundation. If you do not find all of your answers on the Humane Society website, it is best to go directly to a shelter in your own county or city.

  • Is this a no-kill center?
    Some shelters, typically pounds, have to put animals to sleep if they do not find people to adopt them. If you are dropping off your own pet or a kitten that you found on the street it is important to make sure that you are not leaving it at a kill shelter in order to avoid animal cruelty.

  • Can you take in a whole lost litter of puppies?
    If you find an entire litter of stray puppies, call the animal rescue or shelter that you intend on sending them to before calling animal control to bring them over. Some shelters will have the space to take a lot of animals at once while others may only be able to take some of the animals.

  • Which breed of dog is best for kids?
    Allow workers at the facility to pair you with a pet that will fit your family's needs.

  • I need to move and my cat will be homeless. Can you take it in for free?
    Rescues may or may not charge a small fee to take in an animal.

  • Can I foster multiple dogs or cats?
    Some shelters may get so many abandoned or abused dogs that they need foster homes to house them until a permanent home can be found.
  • National Animal Control Association
    Our association aids animal shelters nationwide in getting the funding they need and finding new homes for their pets! If you would like to adopt from an animal shelter, find one near you today!

    "This place is great in theory but badly executed. One of the first things that hits you is the smell. Some of the staff seem nice but for some reason you don't feel confident in them. Nice decor and facility though. If they weren't a hodgepodge of unprofessional and unkempt looking people, some of whom are quite young, it would be a better place. ..."

    Most work at animal shelters is done by volunteers. Animal shelters require a lot of mundane, menial work such as cleaning cages and pens. Dogs and horses also need to be trained and exercised.

    Animal shelters mostly rely on donations, although animal control gets city or county funding. A humane society generally does not get any kind of government subsidy. Breed rescues are sometimes supported by a breed society.

    An animal control facility is commonly obligated to take in any kind of animal that may be brought in, ranging from puppies and kittens to cows, sheep and goats. In many cases, large animals are fostered or specialist rescues are contacted.

    Shelters may find themselves dealing with a situation involving cruelty and abuse. Animals may be remanded into the custody of a shelter until the court case occurs, with adoption restricted or banned. Photographic documentation of the animal's condition is important. Most animals that come into shelters, though, are simply homeless for one reason or another, with many being abandoned. A shelter or humane society may also deal with stray and lost cats or dogs. Animal control generally puts strays in the pound until their owner can be found. Most rescued animals are eventually put up for adoption.

    Fund raising is an important part of a shelter's activities. Rescues are generally required to get a 501(c) and may be set up as a foundation. The physical center is also subject, in many jurisdictions, to inspection. Other areas, however, only check on a rescue's finances.

    Adoption fairs are also important, and may take place at the shelter's facility or at pet stores or even other locations. It is often easier to find homes for puppies and other youngsters. Shelter workers tend to be young, mostly volunteers or low paid, and doing it for the love.
