What is the Adoption Process Like?


When you visit North Shore Animal League America’s adoption center, an Adoption Counselor will help you determine the type of animal that will best fit your lifestyle.  They will introduce you to the animals you are interested in.  The meet and greet will give you the opportunity to bond with your potential companion.  You will have plenty of time to play and interact with your new friend in our family-friendly areas designated for that purpose. When you decide to adopt an animal, the counselor will walk you through the process and help you complete the application.
