What is the process for adopting a pet from the Beaver County Humane Society?

It's simple. Stop in and look at the wonderful pets we have to offer for adoption. Complete an adoption application. Meet with one of our adoption counselors to ensure that this pet is a good match for you. You must be the head of your household in order to adopt. Everyone who lives in your household should be part of the selection process. You should bring a valid form of ID that shows your current address. If you rent your home, please bring a copy of your lease that states that you are allowed to have pets. If you meet all adoption criteria and the pet is ready to go home, a happy match can be made that day! Click here to read more.
