- Look through the kennel to see if you find a pet that interests you. You can look online here. Advise the kennel staff so they can take the animal out of the kennel for a closer look and answer your questions. Fill out an application, receive Officer approval, and take the application to the front counter for processing.
If you rent, you will need written approval from your landlord giving you permission to adopt that specific animal. All adult family members must approve of the animal of your choice. If you are interested in a dog adoption and already own other dogs, you must show proof of rabies, current licensing and complete a successful dog visit. It is a zoning violation in the City of Eugene to have more than two dogs living at any one residence. If you live in the unincorporated area of Lane County and own more than two dogs, you will have the option of purchasing a non-commercial kennel license, or you may choose to license your dogs individually.
Once you fill out your application and turn it in to the front office staff, you will have one day to have the pet of your choice put on hold for you so that you have time to complete the application requirements and make payment.
The animal can be released for adoption after the release date. The release date is determined by the following:
- Whether or not the animal displayed some type of verifiable identification upon arrival at the shelter.
- Whether or not the animal is determined to be stray or unwanted.
You can begin the adoption process immediately upon the animal's arrival at the shelter although it may not be available for release until a few days later.
