If you’re looking to adopt a cat or dog this year, considering choosing a pet from the CHA Animal Shelter for pet adoption. Not only will you get an animal that has been spayed/neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated; rescued pets can be some of the best and most grateful animals.
CHA Animal Shelter will be hosting several offsite pet adoption events through the end of the year which would be a perfect opportunity to pick up your next pet for a reduced adoption fee.

Please consider choosing a pet from the CHA Animal Shelter or a local pet foster group like P.A.W.S. or Peace for Paws, rather than from a pet store. Certain pet stores get their dogs from puppies mills and “breeders” that seem legitimate but are actually puppy mills. While some people say that adopting from a store is “rescuing” those animals, it creates supply and demand. The store will just replace that dog with a new puppy mill dog, and the mill will have an open space to fill as well. There are always a variety of breeds and ages of animals available for rescue, so don’t rule out a “pound puppy” because you want a specific breed. When you adopt from the shelter or a foster, you create a space for another dog or cat to be saved.
