Dogs & Puppies

Thank you for choosing Animal Welfare Society as a place to adopt a pet! 

Home | Adopt a Pet | Dogs & Puppies

We regularly have adolescent and adult dogs for adoption. When we have puppies for adoption, you can find them on this page. Remember that puppies tend to be adopted very quickly, so if you do not see any, please check back again soon.

We look forward to helping to match you with your new best friend and supporting you throughout the adoption process. Adopters are welcome to visit our Adoption Center without a scheduled appointment to meet and adopt pets including dogs, cats, birds and small animals. We are open 7 days a week, from 10 am – 3:30 pm.

All adoptions are on a first come, first served basis. These adoption pages are REAL TIME, so as soon as a dog or puppy is adopted, it will “disappear” from the website.

Questions about adopting a dog or puppy?

For more information, please contact our Adoption Center via email or telephone at (207) 985-3244.
