Adoption / Re-homing

Please view the different options below to adopt a homeless pet or re-home a pet.

Adopting a Pet

Charlton Animal Control does not currently have an adoption program. Instead, we work with local shelters that accept our unclaimed dogs and cats into their adoption programs. The shelters do age appropriate vet work prior to putting the animals up for adoption. Visit your local shelter and thanks for adopting a homeless pet!

Re-homing Your Pet

We believe that pets are for life. But we also understand that there are times when you may need to rehome your cat or dog (or other small animals). 

Here are some tips if you need to find your pet a new home:

  • If your pet was adopted from a shelter, call that shelter and inquire about their return policy.
  • Contact local animal shelters and see if they can accept your pet into their adoption program. Most shelters have waiting lists so don't wait until the last minute to call.
  • Call your vet and see if they can help you place the pet.
