We require a signed adoption contract and a fee to adopt a pet. Adopters must be at least 18 years old, and bring a photo ID. If you rent or live in a home with your parents you must provide a written statement with an up-to-date contact name and number for us to contact to confirm you can have a pet. This is not negotiable. You must have permission from your landlord before adopting any animal from our shelter. The Adoption Protocol - Pre-adoption Interview and Application - This includes a questionnaire that will help us help you choose the animal that fits you the best. You must do this even if you are coming to see an animal that you have seen on the website or our Facebook page. Please note that your adoption application will be denied or pending approval if the following application factors apply to you: you have unaltered animals; your landlord does not approve pets; current animals in the home are not up-to-date on vaccinations and preventatives; or a plan of action is not in place for the pet given something happens to you. 2 Week Foster - We will send an animal home with you on a trial basis. This allows you to see how the animal will do in your home setting. This part of our process has become a key factor in successful adoptions. The experience will tell you whether the animal will fit into your home and whether they will do well with the day-to-day schedule of your everyday life. We feel that out of all the steps this is the most important to ensure that the adoption is successful. We reserve the right to deny any adoption if we feel it is not in the best interest of the animal or the adopter. Our program is designed to match the right animal to the right family. The animal that you may have had in mind may or may not be a good match. If that is so we will work hard to find you the right cat or dog for your family.
