Adoption Policies

Prince William Humane Society takes pride in helping make the perfect match between you and your new furry family member.

Our Team

We have a trained team of adoption counselors - both staff and volunteers. They meet with potential adopters to provide one-on-one counseling about your lifestyle and the personality characteristics, size and activity level of the pet you are interested in.

Topics May Include:

  • Your Work Schedule
  • Plans for Supervision
  • Leisure Preferences

  • Training
  • The Type of Home
  • Other Pets in the Home

Other Pets

If other pets are involved, we request that you bring them to the Adopt Shop. This gives them the chance for a proper introduction, while determining compatibility.

What is Involved in the Counseling Discussion?

The counseling discussion helps to ensure your pet is a good fit in terms of breed, size, behavior and compatibility.
PWHS adoption counselors will also review a chart for approximate cost of care for the pet you are considering.
