Barring some mistake on our part, any animal listed as available on our website, or any site that shares our animal listings (AdoptAPet, PetFinder, etc.), is available.
Barring some mistake on our part, any animal should be appropriately listed as altered on our website or any site that shares our animal listings (AdoptAPet, PetFinder, etc). As a rule, we do not do pediatric alters. If you adopt an animal from us that is younger than 6 months of age, you will be required to have the animal altered by 6 months.
You can view our adoption process on our website under the header "Adoption Process"
You can view our adoption fees on our website under the header "Adoption Process"
Our application can be found on our website under the tab "Adoption Application"
Our applications are processed by volunteers so it may take more than a week to process your application. We do apologize for the delay. It can be very stressful for all involved.
Due to the sheer volume of applications we receive, we may not reach out to an individual if their application is rejected.
We are based in Winchester, VA and have foster homes in Fredericksburg, VA – Laurel, MD – Baltimore, MD – Capon Bridge, WV – Romney, WV. We do NOT have a facility. All animals are in foster homes.
We require a filled and approved application before scheduling any meet-n-greets. This protects not only ourselves, but our animals. We are completely foster-based and must make sure we are safe when meeting strangers from the internet.
If you are applying for a puppy or a kitten below the age of 6 months, it is very unlikely any meet-n-greet is necessary as their true personalities do not emerge until after puppyhood/kittenhood. Puppy and kitten temperament is largely effected by their environment. If you provide a stable household, they will be very loving companions.
Due to COVID-19, we have suspended much of our meet-n-greet process.
We require a kitten to be 10 weeks of age, while puppies to be 8 weeks of age, before they are adopted. We may list a puppy or kitten as available before they're able to leave our care to get them an approved home to move into as soon as they reach the appropriate age.
We have moved much of our process to a virtual environment. Should your application be approved, a volunteer will walk you through the next approved steps.
