The purpose of this shelter is to find good homes for our pets. 

Our friendly adoption staff will work with you to find the right dog or cat for your home. Get started by checking our online adoption listings (regularly) or stop by shelter.

It’s important you spend time getting to know prospective pets. If you have questions or wish to visit with an animal, just ask a staff member for assistance.

If you wish to put an animal on hold or to adopt an animal from the Community Humane Shelter of Steuben County, you must have an approved application.

We will put an adoption hold on per a phone call, application, Facebook or email request.

If you find an animal you wish to adopt, we will have an informal consultation to ensure that you and the pet you’ve selected are a good match. During the adoption process we will review the animal’s medical records.
