The Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter (PRAS) is now offering adoptions of dogs, cats and pocket pets by appointment only, according to a press release.

Workers at the shelter say the move from walk-in adoptions to adoptions by appointment helps in controlling the number of visitors in the shelter at once and focuses efforts on helping pets find their forever homes in this time of the coronavirus (COVID19).


To make an appointment, go to the view adoptable animals link online. You can see pictures and read bios of the animals up for adoption.

Once potential adopters have identified one or two pets they are interested in they can set up a Meet & Greet. A member of the shelter’s staff will review the survey and call to schedule the appointment.

Appointments are being made in 45-minute intervals during regular adoption hours, 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday; 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday; closed Tuesday).

Adoptions can be processed immediately after the Meet & Greet.
More information, including adoption costs, can be found on the PRAS website at www.peninsulaanimalshelter.com
