Covid-19 Update: Adoptions by Appointment
Thank you all for being patient as we attempt to accommodate continued adoptions during this time. PRAS is going to adoptions by appointment only in the effort to keep everyone as safe as possible.
Here is the process:
Step 1: Go to our website to view adoptable animals at www.petango.com/peninsularegionalanimalshelter . There you can see pictures and read bios (we are working on updating those with more information).
Step 2: If you are interested in doing a Meet & Greet please fill out our adoption survey. No more than 2 animals per Meet &Greet at this time. You can download it and send as an attachment or take a picture and send as an attachment to PRASfirstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 3: Our shelter staff will review your survey and call you back to schedule the appointment. If you rent please make sure you can provide documentation that you can own that animal. At this time, the appointments are being scheduled during our regular adoption hours in 45 minute intervals.
Step 4: When you come in for your appointment please be mindful of how many people are coming in to limit contact. If several people are needed to meet with the animal please let us know that when you schedule the appointment. Also, if a dog to dog Meet & Greet needs to happen we will discuss these options with you at your appointment time.
Step 5: We can process the adoption immediately following the Meet & Greet!

Want to know how we evaluate an animal’s behavior before it becomes available for adoption? See our video about behavior assessments and volunteer opportunities.
Are you looking to add a furry (or not so furry) member to your family? Well you have come to the right place; we have dogs, cats and “pocket pets”! The animals on the adoption floor can change daily so checking our Petango website or coming in to look is recommended.
What is the adoption process?
Once you have seen an animal you are interested in, you would need to complete an adoption survey and meet with an adoption counselor. During your "Meet and Greet" the adoption counselor will have you interact with the pet, ask questions and discuss any special requirements. You must be 18 years old with a valid I.D. to complete the adoption contract.
You can download and fill out the adoption surveys here:
Do we put animals on hold?
We will only put a hold on animals in certain circumstances, which include allowing another family member or pet to meet the animal, or if we need additional documentation from you.
If you bring your dog in to do a meet and greet, we need to see a current Rabies certificate.
Do we do same-day adoptions?
Yes! If you rent, we need to see the pet addendum of your lease or permission from your landlord.

What comes with the adoption?
Every adoption comes with spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccines including rabies, heartworm test for dogs, FIV/FELV test for cats, initial deworming, microchip with registration and any current medications.
Can I bring my animal back for follow-up veterinary care?
Our veterinarian provides medical care for the shelter animals only. We encourage you to establish a relationship with a local veterinarian. To help you find one, we include a list of participating clinics in your adoption folder.
Are you a qualified pet trainer?
Pet training and new owner education are the keys to a successful pet adoption. To support new adopters as they learn about their new companions, the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter (PRAS) is reaching out to see how you can support adopters as pet trainers in our communities. The PRAS promotes Positive/Rewards based training. We are growing a list of qualified pet trainers, and what discounts or free initial support trainers are willing to provide our adopters. This list will be available on our website, our Intake/Reunite lobby, and in our adoption folders. If you are a pet trainer interested in supporting successful adoptions of shelter animals, please fill out and submit this form to the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter.
