We have a variety of cats, dogs, kittens and puppies waiting for new forever families. Before meeting any of our available pets, we ask that you review our Adoption Requirements and complete a brief Adoption Application. It's in everyone's best interest to find the right match, and your cooperation is greatly appreciated. As soon as your Adoption Application is reviewed and processed (generally within 3-5 days) Carolina P.A.W.S. will get in touch with you to arrange for you to meet the animal you have applied for. Filling out an Adoption Application does not obligate you to adopt nor guarantees an adoption.
Please note: We will occasionally allow adoptions of puppies and kittens that are not spayed/neutered; however, the adopter must bring the animal to one of our approved vet partners for spay/neuter . This date will be scheduled prior to adoption and will be stated on the adoption contract. We require the use of our veterinarians because our program relies on subsidized healthcare from our animal hospitals. We will follow up to ensure that all animals are brought in for scheduled spay/neuters.
