Thank you for your interest in adopting your next family member from the Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS). LAPS adopts approximately 500 animals each year into loving homes. Our commitment to the animals and to our adopters is to ensure that we find the best match for both you and the animals in our care. Just as you have your own unique expectations, needs, and lifestyle so do our shelter animals who are waiting for their forever family. The steps we take in our adoption process are necessary to ensure that the animals adopted from our shelter are placed into their forever home where the relationship is mutually fulfilling.
The following steps are needed to create your account on our adoption portal:

We are very grateful for your interest in adopting from LAPS. Please know that sometimes we receive multiple applications for one animal. If you are not selected, please do not be discouraged! You are valued and most likely an amazing home - another applicant may have simply been a better match for the animals needs.
