Adoption Application

Every year millions of pets wind up in shelters, and every year millions of people make the choice to give them new homes.

Our Animal Control Officer, Shayla Howe, has been busy! For years, Shayla has been gently persuading members of NPD to adopt lonely cats and dogs that need homes. It is hard to say no to a furry little paw reaching out from a cage. Four years of in-house adoptions later, members of NPD have reached maximum pet capacity.  Therefore, in 2019, we began our Take Me Home Tuesday program.  When we have animals available for adoption, we post their picture and some information about each pet on our Facebook page.  We invite anyone who is interested in adopting the pet to complete an application and submit it to ACO Howe.  After reviewing applications, she will reach out to qualified applicants and will arrange a meet and greet.

 Anyone interested in adopting one of these animals, can contact ACO Shayla Howe at showe@northamptonma.gov
