The Lawrence Humane Society understands that sometimes, you need a little extra time to make a decision.
If you’ve already met one of our amazing pets and would like to bring additional family members to meet your potential pet, introduce your resident dog to the dog you’re interested in, or just need time to get your home ready for your new arrival, placing an adoption hold on your potential new pet will guarantee that he or she will not be adopted during your hold period.
Hold fees are non-refundable and do not apply to the adoption fee. Adoption holds can only be placed on animals after you have met the animal.
