Mission Statement: To reduce the overpopulation and suffering of dogs and cats through education and low-cost spay/neuter programs and to rescue, vet and place adoptable dogs and cats into good permanent homes.
Adoption Process For Cats: Our adoption process begins with the submission of an application. The application can be found by clicking the "Item Details" link at the bottom of the page for the cat you are interested in. You will find pictures for most of our available cats and kittens on our Available Cats Page. When you find a cat or kitten (or more than one) that you are interested in, you can immediately fill out an online adoption application. It will be reviewed by one of our volunteers and forwarded to the foster. Then the foster will contact you, go over the application with you and if you meet certain criteria, they will make arrangements for you to meet the cat at their home or at one of our adoption events. This process of receiving your application, forwarding it to the foster and contacting you, could take a couple of days, so we ask for your patience. The contact information (telephone or e-mail address) for the foster is included in the cat or kitten's online write-up. You can contact the foster directly with any questions you may have, and make arrangements to meet the cat or kitten that you are interested in adopting. If you prefer not to submit your application online, you can take it with you to your meeting or complete it once you have met the cat or kitten you want to adopt. Although not all of our available cats or kittens are shown at each adoption event, we have many of them available for viewing and adoption each week. See our Adoption Events Schedule. Meet the kitties, talk with the foster or one of our other volunteers, and fill out an application during an event. In most cases, once the application has been reviewed and approved, you can take your new kitty home with you that day. Remember, many of our cats and kittens can be seen anytime at the in-store adoption centers at PetSmart in the Spring Meadows Plaza on Airport Highway in Holland, OH, and at the Petco on Washtenaw Avenue-Arborland in Ann Arbor, MI. Adoption Process For Dogs: After you decide on a dog (or dogs) you're interested in from our Available Dogs page, our adoption process begins. Please submit an application, which can be filled out by following the link on the animal's page that you are interested in. It will be reviewed by one of our volunteers. If certain and critical criteria is met, we will pass your application on to the foster. The foster will then contact you and make arrangements for your family to meet the dog, most likely at one of our weekly Dog Adoption Events. A home visit is also required for all of our adoptions. If you are local to the Toledo area, it will be performed by one of our volunteers. If you are long-distance, then we will need to make arrangements with a rescue group in your area. The processing of your application can take several days, so we ask for your patience.
