•Adoption Locations

Our main Campus Adoption Center is open daily and houses dogs, cats, and other pets. Some of our dogs are also available at PetSmart Charities Everyday Adoption Center (EAC) at the PetSmart at 286 W. Lake Mead Parkway in Henderson. Cats are also available at select Petco locations around town.

•Adoption Requirements and Information

Thank you for your interest in adopting a shelter pet.

In order to follow current and best practices in the animal welfare profession, we are no longer conducting in-shelter dog-to-dog introductions. The shelter is a strange and stressful place for most pets and information gathered during such a brief meeting is not a clear indication of how the animals will act in a home environment. We have found that a properly staged introduction outside of the shelter environment increases the chance of a positive introduction outcome. Adopters will be provided with step-by-step instructions on how to properly introduce their new pet to their resident pet(s). Our Adoption Counselors are always here to help. If you have any questions or concerns after bringing your new pet home, please contact us at 702-384-3333 x131 or dept-adoptions@animalfoundation.com

All interested adopters must provide a valid form of identification in order to adopt a pet.

Instead of monthly promotions, The Animal Foundation has dramatically lowered their adoption fees 365 days a year for dogs and cats six months and older. Dogs six months and older are now just $50 and cats six months and older are $25. Occasionally, we receive a grant to help cover adoption fees for a specific audience, such as seniors. Click here to see any current adoption grants.

We also offer a 50% discount on adoption fees for all active military and veterans. Discount applies to active military, veterans, and first responders (police, EMT, paramedics, and firefighters). ID badge must be presented at time of adoption. Discount applies for members only. Not valid for family members.
