Each year hundreds of homeless animals are united with caring adopters at Hinsdale Humane Society. Our goal is to make appropriate, permanent, matches between adopters and our shelter animals. Our staff members are trained to help families find just the right animal for their needs.
We invite you begin your search for a loving pet. Here is how our adoption process works:
You may fill out the online Adoption Application or you may come into the shelter during adoption hours to complete your application. Completing an application does not place a “hold” on the animal, nor is it a guarantee of adoption. All customers are handled on a “first come, first served” basis. We do not schedule appointments. We look forward to meeting you to help you find your next furry family member!
Out of state adoptions: Hinsdale Humane Society will adopt to out of state residents who travel to our shelter to complete the adoption process, including the spaying and neutering of intact animals. Please call the shelter in advance for information on our hold policy. For health and safety reasons, we are not able to ship animals.
