The Louisa Humane Society has animals of every breed, shape, age, color, size, temperament...all they need is a safe, loving, responsible family to call their own.  Will you open your heart and your home to one of these amazing creatures?  Are you looking for a particular breed?  Did you know that animal shelters often have purebreds?  Are you looking for an absolute one-of-a-kind mix? You'll find them here. Not one breed, but a fascinating and gorgeous mix of several. 


Adoption Process

Our adoption process is application based. We don't do same day adoptions so we recommend you complete our online adoption application even if you don’t have a specific pet in mind. You will hear from one of our volunteers as soon as possible.


We MUST receive a completed application for you to be considered to adopt or arrange a meeting with any pet in foster care.  Approval to adopt is contingent upon completing an informal interview with an adoptions counselor and approved vet and/or personal references, and landlord check if applicable.  Once the application is approved, we have the applicant sign an adoption contract and pay the adoption fee to officially transfer the ownership of the pet over to the new family.
