The downloadable Preliminary Adoption Application for Henderson Animal Care and Control Facility can be filled out and brought with you, or filled out at the shelter. If you are renting your place of residence, your landlord's information will be on this form for us to verify you are allowed to have this type of pet at your residence.

We will still reserve the right to conduct yard checks, and also reserve the right to deny any adoption if we feel it is not in the best interest of the pet, but now you are able to apply to adopt any type and size of pet regardless of where you live, as long as your landlord approves.
