Welcome to the Shelbyville-Bedford County Humane Association’s adoption center. We are glad that you have come to us to adopt your new pet.
The following information will help us assist you in the selection of your new pet. The animal’s welfare is our foremost consideration. The consulting process is designed to help us determine if the adoption is in the animal’s best interest. It also helps us find the right animal for your lifestyle.
The animals available for adoption come to us from a variety of sources. Their health is monitored, but there is always the chance that an animal is incubating a disease without showing any clinical signs.
In order to be considered as an adopter, you must:
- Be 18 years of age or older
- Have identification showing your present address
- Have the knowledge and consent of your landlord
- Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide medical treatment, proper training, and care for a pet.
THE SHELBYVILLE-BEDFORD COUNTY HUMANE ASSOCIATION RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ADOPTION TO ANYONE. NO ANIMAL WILL BE ADOPTED TO PERSONS HAVING AN EXTENSIVE HISTORY OF LOSING, GIVING AWAY, SELLING, OR HAVING ANIMALS INJURED OR KILLED BY MOVING VEHICLES. NO ANIMAL WILL BE ADOPTED TO PROSPECTIVE OWNERS WHO MISLEAD OR FAIL TO PROVIDE ACCURATE INFORMATION ON THE ADOPTION APPLICATION.
