Adoption Process


 We can’t wait to help you find the perfect best friend for your family. Follow these steps to get started:


Pet Network embraces and uplifts the Adopters Welcome philosophy. We celebrate any and all adopters wanting to make a life-long commitment to a new pet. Adopters Welcome was instituted to combat discrimination and out-dated requirements for adoption. We believe in a conversation-based approach, as well as lowering common barriers to adoption such as housing and economic status. 

Our staff is highly proficient in what Adopters Welcome means to our shelter and the ripple effect it has on our community. If you are interested in adopting a Pet Network animal, please reach out to

You can also find more information on the Adopters Welcome movement here.

 If an animal is currently in foster, please contact the shelter at 775-832-4404 to schedule a meet and greet!
