Adoption Process:

We do not have a shelter, therefore, we do not have visiting hours. All animals are in foster homes in the Jamestown area.  We can give you detailed information about each animal as they live with us as part of our family. 

If you are considering the responsibility of becoming a pet parent and see one of our adoptables you are interested in, we ask that you fill out a "Pre-Adoption Application."  This application will then be reviewed by our Prairie Paws volunteers and the foster parents who are caring for the animal until a permanent home is found.  This application is based on the best interests of both the pet and you as their guardian.  The application process can take up to five days with reference, landlord checks, etc. Prairie Paws requires that all animals be spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Prairie Paws does not adopt out pets on a first come, first served basis or put any of the foster pets on "hold" without an approved application.  Our goal is to find a family committed to the lifetime of the pet and placing the animals in homes suited to the pets' needs. Applicants must be 18 years of age and independent (i.e. not living at home with parents, etc.)

If you see a pet you are interested in....please email us first with questions, and we will have the foster parents contact you with information.

Adoption applications can be printed from our website: Downloadable Application  Print them off, fill them out and mail them back.  Or, you can request an online application that can be filled out online.

All animals are spayed, neutered, shots updated and vet checked before being placed in homes. A pre-adoption application is required before meeting the animals or adoptions can take place.
