The Glendale Humane Society’s adoption process consists of the following:

  1. Complete and submit an adoption application
    Take the time to thoroughly and completely answer all questions. If an application is not completed in its entirety, the adoption process ENDS. A complete application helps us to know which of our cats might be a good match for your family. We have gotten to know our cats’ personalities and can be very helpful to you in selecting the right cat. These cats are like family to us and we will not place them hurriedly or carelessly.

  2. Meet the cat
    Once your application is approved, a GHS representative will introduce you to our cats and assist you in selecting an appropriate cat for your family. When selecting a new cat or kitten, be sure to consider your current pets. Since this cat will be a new family member, we would like everyone, including your current pets, to be happy with the choice.

  3. Take your cat home
    Before you take your new cat home, a contract outlining the specific responsibilities of the adopter will be signed. All adopters must have an appropriate carrier on hand to take home a cat, or reimburse GHS for a carrier. GHS will NOT allow a cat to leave the shelter if it is not secured in a carrier.
