    • Complete our Adoption Application in advance.
    • Bring a valid photo ID and payment for the adoption fee (cash and major credit cards only).
  • Meet with an Adoption Counselor to discuss your application and the pets you would like to meet.

  • Visit with the pet(s) you are interested in during a Meet and Greet.
    You and your family* will interact with pets and work with an Animal Care Associate to see if this is the right pet for you. The Brevard Humane Society does not “hold” pets for adopters, so if you want to finalize your adoption, please come prepared with all necessary household members for the Meet and Greet.

    *Please note: For dog adoptions, the Brevard Humane Society requires that all household members meet and interact with the dog during a Meet and Greet before an adoption can be approved or finalized. Should you already have another dog or pets at home, they too must come to the shelter for a Meet and Greet to make sure all the animals get along.

  • If the Meet and Greet is a success, an Adoption Counselor will complete your adoption paperwork to make it official! 

  • Take your new family member home and begin your life together.
