Find your next forever friend

Thank you for your interest in adopting from Father John's Animal House! We very much look forward to working with you and hope we are able to help you find your new companion.

In light of the recent developments surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and governmental regulations, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily not be open to the public. 

If you are intending to adopt from our facility, we ask for your patience and understanding as we go through these uncertain times as a community. We greatly appreciate you willingness to adopt and hope to see you soon.

We need your support more now, than ever before. 

If you see a dog or cat that you are interested in, we ask that you fill out our Pre- Adoption form. Please be aware that if you currently have pets or have had pets over the last 12 months you will need to provide veterinary records showing they were kept up to date on vaccinations and routine care. Should you rent your current residence, you will need to provide proof you are eligible to own a pet in your home.

We carefully screen our adoptive families so that the right animal will go home with the right family. To make the transition easier, an introduction will be set up on the neutral territory of the shelter for any existing family dogs to meet the potential adoptee.
