We’re dedicated to finding the perfect home for our cats and dogs and we’d love to meet you!

Thank you for considering adoption from Rosie’s Southside Animal Shelter, where true love is rescued!

How to Adopt

Come visit and meet your match. Our adoption counselors can help you find a true companion. Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge you need to adopt while making the process a positive experience.

It’s best to bring all human family members during your visit and we always encourage meet and greets with resident dogs.

Adoption applications are available when you visit the shelter.

Adoption fees vary and include:

  • Spay/neuter
  • Vaccinations (including rabies)
  • Worming
  • Microchip
  • Bag of food
  • Vet wellness exam
