Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Adams County Animal Shelter/Adoption Center is currently under modified operations. Contactless services are offered by appointment only and include virtual adoptions, lost and found, pet surrender, and end-of-life services.

Adoption Process

Our adoption center is currently closed however, we are currently offering no-contact virtual adoptions. For more information on our virtual adoption process, please click here.


We advocate for animals and their families.

We want each pet in our care and the families who adopt them to succeed. How? By listening to the unique needs and expectations of each family wishing to adopt, and then finding the best pet match. We teach families about the unique animal they adopt, including discussing its breed, personality, expected behavior based on factors like age; and how to best care for them. We believe the more a family knows about their new pet, the higher chance for a long, happy life together.
