Adoption Application Forms

Our "Getting to Know You" adopter surveys are designed to help our adoption counselors assist you in finding the best match possible. By cross-referencing your needs with our adoptable pets' existing personality profiles, we are able to help you find the right companion animal for your unique lifestyle and preferences. All adoptions are subject to the approval of Butte Humane Society staff.
