Visit our Adoption Fees and Policies page for information regarding pet adoption requirements.

Once you have completely filled out our adoption application, please submit it via email , postal mail, or bring it with you when you visit to begin the review process.

The review process generally takes 24 - 48 hours. During this time, our staff will contact your veterinarian for a reference. This is done as soon as possible, and depends entirely on your veterinarian's open calling hours. The staff will also use this time to contact your landlord, parent/family member, or property owner, to gain permission for you to adopt the pet you have applied for.

The Shelter Manager will review the application and will make the final approval for adoption. If there are concerns, the Adoption Committee may meet to review an application.

If you are looking to adopt a dog, you will be allowed to introduce the dog to your pets and bring the pet home on a day visit once your application has been approved.

 The Tri-Lakes Humane Society, Inc. is a Registered Shelter/Pet Rescue Organization under New York State Department of Agriculture Markets Law Section 408: Shelter/Rescue Registration Number: RR036
