The Kearney Area Animal Shelter wants to make sure the animals adopted from this facility are healthy, happy, and behaviorally sound before they go to their new home.
Our adoption fees HELP to pay for feeding, housing, medical care and evaluation for the animals that come through our door each day. We do our best to keep adoption costs at a realistic level and still generate income to support our animals and programs.

If you find the perfect pet at KAAS, we do require a few things before adoption:
If you are a renter, you must provide a landlord's note and phone number, or show proof from your lease that you may have animals.
If you are a homeowner, you may need to provide proof of homeownership.
Provide us with your current veterinarian clinic name and phone number.
If you already have a dog at home, we ask that you bring them in to test out with the potential animal you may be adopting to make sure they get along before you take them home.
You must be 21 years old to reserve and/or adopt an animal.
If you are thinking of adopting an animal as a gift for someone, that person must come meet the animal and meet the above requirements.
