The Pet Adoption Program has 3 components:

The Pet Adoption Program began in 1985. Funded by the Citizens Committee for a Lakewood Animal Shelter (CCLAS) and the City of Lakewood, the program’s focus is to find good homes for healthy stray animals.

1) Animal Control Officers pick up stray puppies, dogs, kittens, or cats that are wondering the streets. They are transported to the animal shelter in the Metroparks where the animals are held for several days waiting for the owner to claim it. If unclaimed, the animal may be put up for adoption. Some animals are abandoned at the shelter, while others are brought in by citizens after finding the strays in empty buildings, under porches, or on their property.

2) All animals are examined upon arrival. If they appear healthy, they are given an initial vaccination and worming medication. Any minor ailments, such as fleas or ear mites, are treated with pet meds. The animals is then ready for adoption.

3) If an animal is selected, the necessary paperwork is completed.
Your $35 adoption fee includes initial deworming medicines, initial vaccination, capstar flea pill (seasonal), a collar with identification tag, a cardboard carrier, initial veterinarian visit with second vaccination from participating local veterinarian, and a voucher valued at $75 off a spay/neuter redeemable at most local veterinarian
