Our Adoption Hours are every day 11am to 3 pm. The Shelter is closed on all major holidays.

To adopt from the HSOC you will need one form of identification which includes your name permanent address and proof of ownership (i.e. local tax stub). If you rent written approval from your landlord is required as well as personal identification. As an added benefit HSOC is giving new pet parents a ShelterCare Gift insurance policy. The ShelterCare Gift provides accident and illness protection for 30 days starting on the date of your adoption. After the 30 days you can continue your insurance policy – at your own expense – by contacting ShelterCare at 1-866-375-PETS or by visiting their website.

The adoption fee is $50.00 for cats or kittens and $85 for dogs adults and puppies. We accept cash Visa MasterCard American Express Discover and debit cards. Checks are accepted upon management’s approval. All adoptions include spay/neuter surgery microchip if requested free first vet visit and all necessary vaccinations through the first year.

Adoption applications are available at the shelter.
