HOW TO ADOPT
When you adopt at Gulf Coast, we want to make the process as smooth as possible for you and your family.
START BY CLICKING "AVAILABLE DOGS" OR "AVAILABLE CATS" BELOW:
Interested in adoption? Navigate to either our dog page or cat page and fill out the adoption inquiry form to get started.
Submitting this form will not put a hold on any specific animal as we do all adoptions on first come, first served basis and does not mean you are required to adopt, but it does help speed up the process! You can fill out this form before you visit or at the shelter.
I FOUND MY FUREVER FRIEND, NOW WHAT?
Adoptions must be started and completed at our shelter, so come on in!
Here, one of our kennel staff will be available to assist you with meeting with the dog or cat of your interest. Once you've made your choice, staff will walk you through the adoption process every step of the way to make sure everything goes smoothly.
In most cases, you can leave with your animal the same day!
