Adoption Process

Since all animals available for adoption are already processed (spayed/neutered, wormed, vaccinated, micro-chipped, etc.), it only takes a few minutes to fill out paperwork before you will be ready to bring your new pet home.

Adoption Ambassadors

The Adoption Ambassadors program empowers those who foster animals to become adoption counselors on behalf of Columbia Animal Services. Ambassadors take home dogs or cats available for adoption and pledge to help those animals find safe and loving homes through word of mouth, social media posts & emails to friends & family, or by hitting the streets with their foster pets. Ambassadors process adoptions themselves, returning adoption applications to Columbia Animal Services.
If you would like to be an Adoption Ambassador, please contact Columbia Animal Services.
Think about your lifestyle when adopting a pet. 
What is your home and yard like? If you get a dog, can you provide appropriate fencing to keep him/her at home?
Are you away from home frequently for business or pleasure? If so, rethink whether you should get a pet or consider getting two so they will have the company.
