If you would like to adopt one of our pets, the first step is the submission of our online application. Once submitted, an adoption coordinator to start the approval process. The time frame from application to approval typically ranges between 48 to 96 hours depending on your responsiveness along with your references.
After you complete an application, there are several things that we will do:
THE ADOPTION: We do not operate like a traditional animal shelter. There are three ways to adopt from us:
As an adopter, you are an extension of the rescue process. Too many pets end up in shelters or back in rescue because their humans were not prepared for the commitment and responsibility of a dog or cat. The application process takes a little time, because we do check vet references, personal references and complete a home visit prior to approving an application. The animals' physical and emotional needs are our highest priority!
Before filling out an application, please evaluate your ability to train, exercise, and care for this pet (financially and otherwise), for the span of its lifetime. Their life depends on it!
Applications are not necessarily taken as “first come first serve”. We are looking for the best match for each pet. We do not sell our pets, we place them in loving fur-ever homes. The adoption fee rarely covers the veterinary expenses that we have been incurred to ensure the pet is as healthy as possible.
Includes vaccinations, spay or neuter, microchip for ID, testing for disease, worming and flea and tick medication
