Adoption Application

  1. Davidson County Animal Shelter Logo

  2. The animals adopted from the Davidson County Animal Shelter may have been exposed to various diseases from proximity to other animals. In addition, the physical condition of some animals may be less than ideal due to conditions the animal may have endured before arriving at the shelter; consequently, there is some risk in adoption. The DCAS strives to carefully screen animals and to inform prospective adopters of any perceivable problems, however, some problems may not be evident to the DCAS at the time of adoption.

  3. Please understand that after adopting an animal from DCAS it is your responsibility to have it checked by your regular veterinarian within 5 days.

  4. The Davidson County Animal Shelter is legally not allowed to treat any sickness or disease after adoption, since we are not a licensed animal hospital.
