Use the filter buttons below or click below the Bissell logo and scroll down to see all the pets. Once you’ve found the animal you’d like to meet, take a moment to become familiar with our adoption process. We’ve recently had to modify the process due to restrictions around COVID 19.

Adoption Process

  1. Meet the Adoption Criteria. Before you do anything else, make sure you meet our adoption criteria. You must be at least 21 years old. You must live within a 60-mile radius of Richardson, Texas. You must share veterinary records for all pets currently in your home and all pets owned in the last five years. All pets in the home must be spayed or neutered. If you rent your home, you must provide verification that pets are allowed on the property. You must be willing to be interviewed by an adoption counselor and you must undergo a home visit from an RHS representative.
  2. Complete Application.  Click the button below to complete the adoption application.
  3. Phone Interview. Compatible applicants will be forwarded to a counselor who will contact the applicant for a phone interview.
  4. Home Visit. If all the steps above are completed satisfactorily, we will set up a home visit where you can meet the pet you are interested in. We will try to send the foster parent so you can learn more about how the pet is in a home environment.
  5. Complete Adoption. If all feel it is a good match, we will schedule the adoption at your home or an off-site location. The applicant will need to complete the adoption contract and pay the adoption fee. Our adoption fee is $225 for dogs and $125 for cats. Discounts are available for senior-aged pets.
