What you’ll need to bring

Photo ID

Proof of Address

We’ll need a valid government issued photo ID with your current address. If your ID does not have your current address, please also bring another type of proof, such a utility bill, water bill or vehicle registration.

If you’re looking to add another dog, you are welcome to bring your family dog for a dog to dog introduction. Please bring someone with you to wait with your dog while you visit with our animals and to hold your dog while you complete paperwork.

Cats take longer to adjust to new family members, so we do not conduct cat-dog or cat-cat visits. Follow the links to learn more about how to introduce a dog and cat, and how to add a second cat to your family.

Please Note: Family pets are not permitted in the kennel area to prevent disease transmission and avoid additional stress for both your pet and the pets staying at our facility.

*Please note that these are our base prices, depending on current numbers of animals in our shelters and the differing needs of individual pets we may reduce this price as best meets the needs of the shelter and the animal in question.

Return animals?

Can I return an adopted animal to Animal Care of Davis County if it doesn’t work out?

Yes, we allow returns for the life of the animal. While we don’t provide a refund for adopted animals if you find that your new pet doesn’t fit well in your family or home you can return the animal within 14 days of adoption date without paying surrender fees and your original adoption fee may count towards your next adoption if completed within 6 months.
