Adoption Process

Adoption Process

 The adoption process is very simple and we are here to help!

  • View the animals. View FVHA’s adoptable animals at the shelter during regular hours or online from home. Each animal at the shelter has an information board that will give you info about the pet’s age, personality and ideal home.
  • Meet the animals. Visit with your potential new pet in one of our private get-acquainted rooms. This is the perfect place for your whole family to get to know the pet you’ve chosen. If you currently have one or more dogs in your home and are adopting another dog, we require the dogs to meet before adoption to ensure their compatibility.
  • Submit an adoption application online.  FVHA’s written adoption application is a tool for matching you and your family with the best animal for your household. We use your answers to make sure the pet you’ve chosen will truly fit into your lifestyle, to ensure that you and your pet are happy for years to come. To print and fill out an application, click here. Drop your application off at the shelter, fax it to (920)733-5347, or email it to reception@foxvalleypets.org.

For questions regarding the adoption process or application call 920-733-1717 or e mail shelter@foxvalleypets.org

Looking to volunteer?

FVHA and our animal residents rely on the many dedicated, talented volunteers who give generously of themselves to help our animals that are in search of new homes. Our volunteers gave 10,963 hours of their time at the shelter in 2013 - this doesn't include time donated at events or through projects outside the shelter!

Become a volunteer! Volunteering at FVHA is a rewarding way to make a real difference for the animals - no matter what skills you have or the amount of time you can give, we would love to have you on our team.
