HOW TO ADOPT A DOG

ADOPTION
We believe every dog deserves and belongs in a loving home. We hold lost dogs brought in to the Shelter for 3 days to see if an owner is looking for them, if no owner comes forward after those three days we then take steps to prepare the dog for adoption.

We do this so that unwanted dogs can find a new, loving home.

To adopt, a Dog Adoption Form is required and the fee for adoption is $125.00.

ADOPTION PROCESS
Adopting a dog is easy. Picking just one isn’t.
Adopting a dog from The Fairfield County Dog Adoption Center & Shelter is a simple process. Our friendly staff will help you every step of the way. Please note applications on dogs are on a first come first serve basis, but we will do all we can to help you find the right dog for you. The Adoption Fee is $125.

To adopt, you can browse animals online or in person at FCDACS. After you’ve found one (or more!), ask a staff member about its availability, known history, personality, likes/dislikes, and more.
Then, you’ll need to complete a Dog Adoption Form. A staff member will review your Dog Adoption Form and ask you a few questions for clarification, if needed.
Once approved, we’ll help you finalize paperwork. If you and your family need a little extra time to get things ready for your new family member, don’t worry, we can hold the dog for 24 hours prior to adoption with an approved Dog Adoption Form.
Next, you and your new family member will be on their way home.

PUPPS PROGRAM
A partner of Fairfield County Dog Adoption Center and Shelter is the PUPPS Program at Southeastern Correctional Complex-Lancaster. Although they are no longer currently in our care, we all here at the Shelter firmly believe every dog deserves a loving home.  In order to see what dogs they have available for adoption in their training program, some of which were originally at our facility, you can follow this link here.

WHAT'S INCLUDED
When you adopt a dog from The Fairfield County Dog Adoption Center & Shelter, you’re not only giving a homeless dog a home, but your adoption fee helps us find even more homes for dogs in need. Between vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, microchips, and feeding, care for a healthy dog in our shelter costs $500 on average.  As a county wide shelter, we treat all dogs, including a number of them with medical issues, and that can quickly double-and in some cases more than triple-that amount.
