Please Adopt a Shelter Animal!

There are plenty of cats and dogs waiting at the shelter for you. All long-term (at the shelter more than 6 months) cats and dogs have been reduced. In addition, some cats and dogs have been sponsored. The shelter staff will let you know which animals have been discounted.

Our Adoption Process

We sincerely hope that we can be of service to you. Anyone interested in adopting a cat or dog must first fill out a screening application. Our application is designed to help us determine if the adoption is in the best interest of both you and the animal, and to place our animals into permanent responsible homes. We want to assist you in finding the pet most compatible with your lifestyle. Because the animal's welfare must be our foremost consideration, HSR reserves the right to deny any adoption. Staff will review your application to ensure that the animal is going to a good home and that it is also the "right" animal for you. We want each adoption to be a good match. If for whatever reason it doesn't work out, please bring the animal back to us.

Visit our website for more information on adopting.

If you didn't see an animal that caught your attention today, please keep checking. We get in new animals almost daily. Our shelter will work hard to help connect you with the pet that is just right for you! We look forward to working with you.

Please help the cats and dogs

If you are not able to adopt, there are many other ways to support the work of the Humane Society of Rome - become a member, sponsor an animal, make a donation, become a foster, volunteer your time, or donate an item from our wish list. Every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated!
