Because we care so much about the safety and well-being of every shelter pet, we have certain requirements of individuals wishing to adopt.

  1. You must be 18 years or older
  2. Valid photo identification, such a current Driver’s license, State identification card or United States passport, is required.
  3. Proof of current address, such as a recent utility bill is required.
  4. If you rent, your landlord must allow pets. We will contact your landlord before your application is approved to verify this information.
  5. Any other dogs or cats living in your home must have current rabies vaccinations and County license tags.
  6. If you plan to keep the dog outside, you must have a fenced yard and a location where the dog can seek shelter from the sun and rain. An Animal Care Officer will visit your home to verify this before approving your application.
  7. Certain breeds may require a home visit by an Animal Care Officer before an application is approved. These breeds include, but are not limited to Pit Bull, Akita, Doberman, Rottweiler, Cocker Spaniel, Dalmatian, and Chow.
  8. There may be other requirements depending on the specific dog or cat you want to adopt.

How to apply

You can visit the Fort Lauderdale Animal Center to fill out and Adoption Application. Or, you can save time by printing off the application at home completing it in advance of visiting the shelter.
