• ALL ADOPTIONS MUSE BE MADE IN PERSON ON A FIRST COME BASIS

    (If more than one adoption application is received, OHS reserves the right to  select the home  that best matches the pet's personality and needs). 

    WE CAN ONLY  ACCEPT PAYMENT OR HOLDS FOR ANIMALS IN PERSON AT THE SHELTER, 

    Let us help you choose the pet that is right for your home and lifestyle:

    • Do you want a lap cat or an independent one?
    • Do you currently have pets?
    • How long will the pet be left alone?
    • Do you want a kitten or puppy, or are you looking for an adult animal?
    • Do you have young children in the house?
    • Would you like a senior dog? We have a few senior dogs that would really love a home in their senior years.
  • What are the adoption requirements?

    Adoption Policy: The adopted pet must be unconditionally loved and given a good home. Arkansas State law requires that all adopted pets must be neutered or spayed before being placed in the new home. The adoption fee includes the veterinary charges for this surgery.

    Some puppies and kittens are too young to be spayed or neutered at the time of adoption.

    Adopting families will be provided with a voucher and information on where  to have this procedure done.


    Adoption Fees: Our standard adoption fees can be found at the bottom of this page. Additional fees apply if special transportation arrangements are required for non-local adopting families. Call 870.741.3050 for adoption fee information.


    Persons adopting animals from the Shelter must agree to the following:

    I (we) acknowledge adoption of the above described animal and agree to the following conditions:

    1. To care humanely, feed properly, provide clean, fresh water daily, and provide comfortable sleeping quarters.
    2. Dogs who can not be contained within a fenced in area when outside, and must be put on a line or lead for their own safety, will be placed on a line or lead designed so that the dog has adequate exercise room, free access to water and shelter at all times, and cannot become entangled in the equipment.  No dog adopted from our shelter is meant to live it's entire life outside. Our adopted dogs are meant to become a part of your family.
    3. The dog or cat will receive regular veterinary care, including annual rabies and distemper combination vaccines.
    4. The Ozark Humane Society may examine or inquire about the dog or cat at any time, and if not satisfied with the conditions under which it is kept, or the dog or cat has not been spayed or neutered according to this contract, may enter upon my premise and take the animal and such entry shall not constitute trespass.
    5. The Ozark Humane Society tries to place animals of good health and disposition as will make a satisfactory pet, but cannot guarantee the health or disposition of any adopted animal or be responsible for any subsequent medical expenses or personal / property damage inflicted by this animal.
    6. I (we) as the adopting family or individual do not own any interest in the dog or cat until it is spayed or neutered (subject to age restrictions) and released by OHS.



    Spay/Neuter Policy: If your pet is not already spayed/neutered, the surgery will be scheduled as soon as possible. Spay/Neuter surgery must be done before you take your pet home. You may pick up your pet following surgery. If the pet you select is too young to spay or neuter, arrangements will be made as noted above to schedule the procedure.

    IF YOU CAN NO LONGER KEEP YOUR ADOPTED PET, YOUR SIGNED ADOPTION CONTRACT STATES THAT YOU WILL RETURN THE ANIMAL TO OUR SHELTER. ALL OF OUR  ADOPTED ANIMALS HAVE BEEN GIVEN LIFETIME SANCTUARY AT OUR SHELTER AND MAY NOT BE GIVEN AWAY OR SOLD. 

  • What is included in the adoption fee?

    The adoption fee ensures that the adopted dog or cat  has been spayed or neutered, is up to date with vaccinations and is ready to go to their forever home. 

    Also included is a lifetime of unconditional love!
