Adoptions are first-come, first-served, based on an approved application. Please print, scan and email or fax your completed application back to us, or bring it by our Welcome Center.

Adoption Requirements: 

1. All dogs that will grow over 25 pounds require a fenced yard if they will live in the Bryan/College Station city limits. You can write an application letter if you feel as though you will be able to meet a larger dog’s needs even though you do not have a yard.

2. Apartment residents will need to write an application letter if they desire to adopt a dog that will exceed 25lbs.  We strongly recommend that apartment residents adopt small dogs under 25lbs.

3. A staff member will need to verify that your landlord allows pets. Depending on your landlord’s policies, pet deposits may need to be paid before the animal goes home.

4. You will need to provide proof that all dogs and cats living with the adopting family are current on their rabies vaccinations. If you live in Brazos County, any dogs, cats or ferrets you own must have current Brazos County tags.

How do I adopt a pet from the Aggieland Humane Society?

Visit our available pets online (updated daily). Next, please first submit your adoption application via email to adopt@aggielandhumane.org. Please allow our team 24 hours to review and approve your application. Our Customer Service Team will contact you once your application is approved.

Once approved, come to our shelter or one of our mobile adoption events.

What kind of dogs/cats do you have?
The Aggieland Humane Society can receive up to 20 animals a day. Animals come into the building daily, so keep checking for new pets. This makes for a good selection of companions to choose from!

I’m looking for a purebred dog/cat. Who can help me find one?
We receive purebred dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens at our shelters, and you are welcome to come down at any time and look at our selection. If you want a particular breed, and we do not have it at the time, you may also fill out a Breed Request to be placed on a waiting list. You may also check out Petango.com

Does the Aggieland Humane Society have other animals for adoption besides dogs and cats?
Occasionally! We offer other animals for adoption such as pigs, chickens, ducks, rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, and mice. All of these adoptable animals can be seen on our Adopt Other pages when they are available. Livestock and pocket pets require a separate adoption application (this process is different from adopting a dog, cat or pocket pet). You may complete this application in advance on our Other Animal Application (PDF).

What forms of payment will you accept?
We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

Can you hold an animal for me?
We only hold animals with an approved application for a 24-hour time period to help you to make the decision to adopt or not adopt. We do not hold animals or take payment over the phone to reserve or adopt animals. We adopt strictly on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that animals may not be adopted for other people.

Can I decide not to have my animal spayed/neutered?
No. Any animal that is released from an animal shelter must be spayed or neutered under Texas law.

Read why it’s important to spay/neuter your pets!
