ADOPTION

Why adopt from the Spartanburg Humane Society?

The Spartanburg community continues to produce many thousands of unwanted animals every year.  We take in approximately 7,000 unwanted animals each and every year.

The Spartanburg Humane Society provides a temporary home for these animals. We need your help to provide them with permanent homes – homes they so deserve!

Adoption fees offer incredible value at $25 for dogs, $100 for puppies 4 months and younger, $5 for cats and $25 for kittens. These fees include spay or neuter surgery, permanent microchip identification, vaccines, as well as many other perks – like a free stay at SouthPort Kennels (up to 6 days) and a personalized pet tag from Paisley Paw!  Oh yeah, and a lifetime of love from your new furry family member!

Just as important, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped to give a loving animal a much deserved second chance – a chance they might not have otherwise had.

To reach Spartanburg Humane Society Adoption staff call 864-583-4805, ext. 101 or email us your question.

Monday – Saturday: 12pm to 6pm

Remember, you will need some supplies for your new pet. If you are adopting a dog you will need a collar and a leash. If you are adopting a cat or kitten you will need a pet carrier. You can purchase much of what you will need at the Spartanburg Humane Society, and all proceeds benefit the homeless animals in our care.

What to expect from the adoption process

Visit the Spartanburg Humane Society and get to know an animal who is available for adoption. We have visitation rooms and a fenced area outside where you can spend some time with the animal of your choice.

Complete a short online adoption application(scroll below) or print out our application and bring it with you.  This paperwork includes a few simple questions, and requires proof of identity. This is simply to protect the health of adopted animals as well as any pets you already have at home. You can speed up this process by bringing in records of your pets’ vaccination history.

Have a counseling session with a member of our staff who will explain all the benefits of adopting from the Spartanburg Humane Society. You can ask your counselor any questions about our post adoption veterinary services, and anything else you might wish to know.

Sign an adoption contract and pay the adoption fee, which helps to offset the cost of the services provided to you and your new pet.

Take your new family companion home!

Small animal adoptions

Many people think the Spartanburg Humane Society only handles dogs and cats but that isn’t the case.  In the last two years we have provided shelter and care to over 1,000 animals of other species.

Rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, ferrets, reptiles, birds or even fish — we are here for every animal who needs us.   If you are looking for a pet like this, we hope you will agree that adoption is the only option!

Adoption fees and procedures vary by species, feel free to contact our adoption department if you have a question about adopting one of these animals.

Meet our small and furry animals awaiting adoption.

Large animal adoptions
  • From time to time, large animal and farm animal species, including horses, goats, cows and pigs also need the help of the Spartanburg Humane Society.

    The procedures may be a little different, but the mission is the same — just like dogs, cats, and smaller critters, these animals also deserve a second chance.

    Adoption fees and procedures vary by species, feel free to contact our adoption department if you have a question about adopting one of these animals.
