Congratulations! You have decided to add a new member to your family and provide a loving home to an animal in need. Gila County’s animal shelter has many friendly dogs and cats that are eager to find a loving home. Adopting a pet is exciting, but it is also a big decision that requires careful thought and consideration.
It is very important that you choose your pet carefully. Your personality and lifestyle should determine which pet would be the best match. Many pets are turned into the shelter because of behavior problems that could have been avoided with a little planning.
There are many things to consider such as:
- Are you ready to make a commitment to a pet for its entire life?
- Is your home and yard large enough to accommodate a pet?
- Are you financially prepared for the costs of caring for a pet?
We also recommend that you learn a little about animal care and behavior before bringing home your new pet.
Once you’ve decided you are ready to adopt, the first step is to come visit our Pets. (The best way to see all of our pets is to come into the shelter.) We have many types of dogs and cats available for adoption, you are sure to find your perfect pet!
