Who We Are

The Hazleton Animal Shelter is working hard to reunite lost pets and their owners, and adopt out any animals that come here. We are dedicated to helping animals find new homes or a rescue to take them. Adoption hours are available 5 days a week. Because of our size, we are unable to accept owner surrenders; all of our animals are lost or stray, and would love to have someone to call their very own. All of our animals must be spayed or neutered as per state law.

Adopting a friend

To adopt a puppy/dog the adoption fee is $100.00. They will be microchipped as well. If the dog is not spayed or neutered prior to adoption, you will receive a $30.00 refund with proof of spay or neuter.

To adopt a kitten/cat the adoption fee is $60.00. All cats are feline leukemia tested and given a micro chip before being adopted. If the cat/kitten isn't spayed/neutered prior to adoption, you will receive a $20.00 refund with proof of spay/neuter.

All perspective adopters must complete an application, complete with vet references (or recent shot records), and personal references. If you don't have a pet yet, 2-3 personal references will be needed.

If you would like to take your new pet home with you the same day you visit, please BE PREPARED - we MUST check vet and personal references before your new friend can be yours. Please bring recent shot records you have for current pets or a letter from your vet, and several phone numbers for your references. Also if you rent your home, you must provide your landords name and telephone number.
