Adoptable Animals

Due to staffing shortages, we are closed for adoption walk-throughs on Tuesday and Thursday until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience!

Adoption Process:

  1. During adoption hours, guests are welcome to walk through our shelter to view adoptable animals. 
  2. Visits with individual pets take place by appointment throughout the day. Walk-in appointments are typically available within the hour. For those that prefer, you may call 757-397-6004 to set an appointment before you arrive.
  3. Submitting an application through our website or scheduling an appointment in advance does not guarantee that a specific pet will be available during your appointment time.  

As part of our dedication to being champions for the human-animal bond, we work hard to keep pets in homes. This is a courtesy listing of families that are looking to match their beloved pet with a new home and are working to keep them out of the shelter.

The pets below are available for adoption through Portsmouth Humane! Please read their bios for information on the pets and how to meet them!
