Thank you for your interest in adopting a pet! Animals can be an important source of companionship and enjoyment. Adoption is an important undertaking and potential new pet owners should be informed prior to adopting. View our available pets for adoption.

Adopting an Animal is Easy

Unclaimed impounded animals become eligible for adoption and can be viewed at the Siloam Springs Animal Shelter. To view eligible pets for adoption stop by during business hours or call 479-524-6535 and make an appointment with the Animal Shelter staff to view the animals.

If you find an eligible adoptive pet that is appropriate for you and your family, it is just a matter of completing the appropriate adoption related documents, paying the required fees and accompanying the officer to the vet's office for the pet's vaccination.

Responsibilities as an Owner

State law requires that every animal adopted in a public shelter must be spayed or neutered. All dogs and cats we receive are healthy and exhibit good behavior are potentially adoptable animals. Many of our puppies, kittens and small dogs will be adopted quickly. If you take the time to email us or call, you might lose a chance at adopting the perfect animal. The shelter is swamped with phone calls each day and you may only get our answering machine, so please come by and see us. We do not ship animals, so you must come in to the shelter for adoption.

Humane Care

When you adopt a pet, you are agreeing to keep the cat or dog in your possession. You are responsible for caring for the pet humanely and keeping it current with necessary vaccines as well as providing any medical treatment it may need. By law, all pets adopted must be spayed or neutered.

Lifelong Commitment

Adopting a pet is a serious lifelong commitment. They become your responsibility for the duration of their lives, which can be for 10-15 years or more. Feeding, grooming, exercising, and training are daily time commitments that must be considered in caring for a happy, healthy pet.
