To adopt a pet from the Kingston Humane Society you will need to print the following document, write out the current date and sign it.KHS Adoption Contract
Various local animal care businesses have 1 or more of our shelter animals at their place of business. These animals are up for adoption, and can be adopted directly from their businesses or adopted after completing the paperwork at the shelter. Please check with the satellite centre to see which way they offer adoptions.
Our standard adoption policies still apply; however, there are some additional points that you should be aware of. Satellite adoption centre staff does not work for the Kingston Humane Society and are mandated to refer certain adoption matters directly to the Kingston Humane Society. They are given a more narrow set of policies that they may adopt under. This is necessary because they do not have the benefit of the experience in screening applicants that the staff at the KHS does. There is a special Satellite Adoption Centre Questionnaire that is used to interview potential adopters.
In the event that the person reviewing the form is not able to complete the adoption they MUST refer the adoption to the adoption coordinator at the Kingston Humane Society. Please understand that this referral may be for many different reasons and the satellite staff member reviewing this form is not allowed to discuss those reasons with you. This is to protect our satellite centre staff from trying to explain policy or decisions that they have no control over. Staff from the Kingston Humane Society will get in touch with you within 2 business days if your adoption cannot be completed at the Satellite Adoption Centre.
We appreciate the exposure that the satellite centers bring to our Society, and ask you to help make sure the experience is beneficial to them.
Returns are not allowed to satellite centers. After the adoption, any questions or concerns should be directed to the Adoptions Coordinator at KHS.Check Out Our Satellite Adoption Centers
