You must be 21 years old or over to adopt and the entire household (other animals included) must be part of the process. Please bring i.d. with proof of your current address. If you rent please bring a copy of your lease, indicating that you are permitted to have companion animals. We reserve the right to do a home visit. We are not a shelter. Our rescued animals stay in volunteer foster homes until they find forever homes. We get to know them very well and do our best to make the best possible match for both animals and humans. Our senior discount is 20% off the adoption for "ripened to perfection" animals 10 years of age and over. Sometimes we have animals who are extremely bonded with each other and truly need to go home together. In these cases the adoption fee will be reduced.
