Tips before heading to an animal shelter

  • Make sure you/your family is ready to adopt a new pet
  • Be sure to bring your government issued identification with you
  • Visit the shelter’s website prior to arriving on CTS day so you have an idea of the types of animals they offer  
  • Pet-proof your home. Prepare an area in your home where your new pet can calmly adjust to the new surroundings
