Bring Home a Furry Friend

If you are ready to make a lifetime commitment to care for a pet, we encourage you to view our gallery of adoptable dogs and cats through the Great Lakes Bay Animal Society on Petfinder. When you’ve found a pet you think might be a great addition to your home fill out an Adoption Application.

The Adoption Process

Our goal is to match people with the right pet to assure a life time bond and forever homes for each pet.

The first step for adopters is to fill out an application and submit the Adoption Application.

The application, along with a phone interview to answer questions and a home visit before adoption, will provide us with information that helps us determine the best fit between pet and adopter. Please fill out the application to the best of your ability and good luck with finding your next family member!

Note: For animals that are not in our GLBAS Foster Program, please direct inquiries and applications through the rescue or shelter where they are housed.

For questions about the adoption process, email glbas.org@gmail.com.
