Schedule A Visit! 

Pet visitation is by appointment. Please use the appointment scheduler to schedule your visit.

STEP 1: View available pets so you know which pets you will want to visit with. Please make note of their names and/or animal identification numbers if possible.

STEP 2: Schedule only one appointment slot per visit. You may visit with up to 3 pets per visit.

THINGS TO KNOW:

  • Your pet visitation will be conducted in one of our new private pet visitation rooms, or outdoors in our play yards (dogs only), weather permitting.
  • Pets are adopted on a first come-first served basis and may be adopted very quickly. Be sure to check the listing of pets at the link above before your appointment for the current status of the pets you are interested in. Pets that are listed as "Available" are currently available for adoption. Those with a status of "Adoption Pending" or "Unavailable" already have been spoken for and are no longer available for adoption. The status of pets sometimes change if an adoption falls through or an "unavailable" pet becomes available for adoption. The website is automatically updated every hour and displays all pets in our program.
  • If you know you want to proceed with adopting a specific pet please email us at petadoption@burlingtonnc.gov to get the process started. You can still schedule a visit to meet the pet prior to finalizing the adoption if you'd like. 
  • Some pets are located at the Animal Services Pet Adoption & Resource Center and some are located off site in private foster homes. Visitation and adoption of pets in the foster program must be scheduled directly with the foster volunteer since these pets are not at the Animal Services Center. You can email fosterpets@burlingtonnc.gov to schedule a visit with, or adoption of a pet in foster care.

Thank you for your interest in adopting!
