Adoption Department
Adoptions are processed at the shelter after an approved adoption application and interview during regular business hours.

Adoption fees are only $130. for dogs or $110. for cats! That includes the spay or neuter sugery which is performed by a local contracted veterinarian after the adoption is completed. This shelter has a mandatory spay/neuter policy. *For animals not yet old enough for surgery (determined by shelter staff) there is an additional Alteration deposit of $50 is required which is fully refundable when the surgery is completed and paperwork recieved by the shelter/city within the allowed time.

Along with the basic spay/neuter surgery, the adoption fee also includes a microchip to help reunite you with your pet should they ever become lost or stolen, their first distemper combo vaccination (FVRCP for cats / DHLLPP-CVK for dogs), a one-year license for adopters living within our service area, as well as a blood test for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus(cats only) which is performed at a local participating veterinarian after adoption.

We are a municipally run shelter and house stray animals also. If you have lost an animal from one of our service areas, please contact shelter personel as soon as possible to see if your pet has been impounded. We highly recommend that you come into the shelter personally to check for your pet! Descriptions vary from one person to another and you will recognize your pet first!

Volunteer opportunities! We DO have opportunites for volunteering at the shelter. Applications are always accepted for volunteer positions and are filled as openings become available. See our website to download the application. You must be at least 16 years of age to volunteer.

On December 21, 1998 the Cities of Sumner and Puyallup opened a joint Animal Control Shelter. We are proud to include service to the incorporated areas of Bonney Lake, Sumner, Edgewood, Puyallup, Milton, Pacific, and Algona.

Dogs and cats living within these areas require an annual pet license. You may license your pets either at the shelter, or email, or call 253-299-PETS (7387). Online license applications can be printed from and mailed in. For your convenience the City Halls (except Puyallup) are also able to license your pets. Puyallup citizens may come to the shelter during normal business hours or use the online application. Please contact us if you need more information. Online Pet Licensing will be available SOON!
