Adoption Process

The adoption process can take several business days and your patience is much appreciated as we process your application. We do not do same day adoptions. The process consists of filling out an application and verifying the application information. We will contact your vet (if applicable) to verify that your pets are current on vaccinations and have been spayed/neutered. We also contact your two personal references so please make sure they are prepared to answer (or return) our phone call. There will be a home visit as part of the adoption process.

We operate on a first-come, first-serve policy. The first completed application on a specific animal will place that animal “on hold” while we process your application. However, we do accept multiple applications on one animal. If we decide the first “hold” is not a good match, we move on to the second application and so on, until the right home is found for that particular animal.

You must be at least 21 years of age to adopt.

If you rent, we will require permission from your landlord in order to allow you to adopt.

We reserve the right to refuse an adoption to anyone for any reason.

Adoption Fees

Adoption fees help cover the medical care of the animal while they wait for a new home, as well as food and transportation costs. These fees also help to provide care for the other animals who may have medical bills that are much higher than any possible adoption fee.
