What will it cost to adopt a cat or dog?

Any adoption fee paid for an adopted pet is a donation and goes back to the care of the animals. Our adoption fees vary based on species, age, breed and demand. Your adoption fee covers the cost of the pet’s spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, deworming, microchip, preventative medications and any medical treatment it may have received. The higher adoption fee for certain animals who will be adopted quickly from the shelter helps to cover the cost of care for our other animals, many of whom may live at the shelter for months. Thank you for your compassionate interest in adopting a homeless pet. We look forward to helping you find your perfect best friend!

How Do I Begin the Process of Adopting a Dog?

Due to COVID-19 all adoptions are by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, please call (864) 223-2498. We recommend taking the meet your match survey and choosing a few animals to meet before scheduling your appointment. You will need to bring a driver’s license or photo ID with you to the Adoption Center, located at 2820 Airport Road in Greenwood, SC. For home renters, please be mindful of any lease or landlord restrictions that may apply to pet ownership. All adoption appointments are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. We do not place any animals on hold.

The Humane Society of Greenwood is the perfect place to find dogs and cats of every type, size, age, and personality — all waiting for a loving home. If you prefer a particular breed that isn’t currently available at a shelter, you may visit an online adoption website to view available shelter and rescue animals in your area such as Petango or Adopt-A-Pet.
