Meet with an Adoption Counselor
Once you have narrowed your search, come and meet with one of our Adoption Counselors at the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast or at one of our off-site adoption locations. (You must be 18 years of age to adopt an animal from HSTC. If you are under the age of 18, you must be accompanied by an adult to visit the shelter). You will then go through an interview process when all of your adoption options are discussed. HSTC makes every effort to make the best pet match with your family.
