HSLM COVID-19 Adoption Protocol

HSLM COVID-19 Adoption Protocol

May 19, 2020

HSLM pet adoptions, including dogs, cats and small animals, can be scheduled by appointment only. Available pets will be featured on and social media platforms. Once an animal becomes adopted, they will be removed from the website.

Please review the revised HSLM COVID-19 Adoption Protocol as outlined below:

  1. Review animals available for adoption on our website
  2. Submit an online adoption application by clicking the “Interested in this animal? Click here!” button on the adoptable pet page on HSLM website.
  3. Upon review, our Adoption Councillor will contact the applicant. Please do not call into the shelter to follow-up or ask questions.
  4. After a phone interview, the Adoption Councillor will invite the potential adopter to meet the adoptable pet during a scheduled appointment. The actual process will be detailed in an email by the Adoption Councillor and sent to the potential adopter once a meeting time has been confirmed. 
  5. Once the visit has been completed, the Adoption Councillor will then make a decision if they feel this will be a good fit for both the adoptable animal and the potential adopter. If the adoption is approved, the adoption fee transaction will be done by credit card only and the adopter will be able to take home the animal along with the HSLM Adoption Package.

HSLM reserves the right to change, alter or cancel this trial adoption protocol at anytime.
