Host: How long does the adoption process take? Michelle Otis: This really depends on the organization or the shelter that you are adopting from and what their process is. Some shelters and some organizations do same day adoptions and so you can expect that when you go in and you apply for an animal, you will walk out with an animal the same day. Other organizations, the process can take anywhere from 3 to 7 days. Some groups take a lot longer. So that's going to be one of the important factors that you are going to want to consider when you choose the shelter or the organization that you apply to adopt your dog from.
