We also have cats and kittens for adoption in the cat rooms at all three Columbia-area PetSmarts (Harbison, Lexington and Two Notch) during their normal business hours.


You must have an approved application before you meet any of our pets, so please allow plenty of time to fill out an application and talk with an adoption counselor about the kind of pet you're looking for. To save time, you can complete our online application and submit it before you come or download a copy to bring with you.   If you see a pet online you are interested in, be sure to note his or her name on your application.

We do reserve the right to conduct a home visit in order to be sure that we are placing the animals in the best homes for their needs. In the majority of cases, a pet can be taken home the same day that it has been adopted.


The adoption fee includes spay or neuter, microchip and microchip registration and all vaccinations appropriate for the pet's age.

  • The adoption fee for cats and kittens varies by animal, ranging from $100 to $150.
  • The adoption fee for dogs and puppies varies by animal, ranging from $150 to $400.


We are located at 1275 Bower Parkway, Columbia, SC.
