We show animals only to applicants with approved applications. You may fill out and submit your adoption application online. We will check your references and get back to you within 24 hours. Alternatively, you may fill out and submit an application at our facility. We will make every effort to approve your application while you wait, but can only do so if all your references are available at that time.
When it comes to choosing an animal, remember that sometimes the cutest animal on the page may NOT suit your family life! Our Adoption Counselor will help you choose an animal that suits your family and activity level. We prefer that everyone in your household is present at the time of adoption. If you are adopting a dog, be sure to bring all your current dogs to meet their new canine family member at the time of adoption. Thanks for wanting to offer a home to a shelter animal, we hope you will fill out an application today!
Your new pet has been spayed/neutered, is up-to-date on shots, and is microchipped. With the microchip comes six weeks of pet insurance through 24-PetWatch. You also get a coupon booklet when you go to Petco and show them the Pets Alive Westchester adoption agreement. You'll also get a discount on training classes offered at PAW. Only $80 for a 6-week course!
There is an adoption fee for all animals!
Our adoption fees help offset some of our costs, including spaying/neutering, shots, microchips, dewormer as well as any necessary medical expenses that may come up. This also helps cover costs such as food and other necessities that are needed to help care for our animals.
