Adoption Process & Requirements

Congratulations on deciding to rescue an animal in need. Everything we do for these animals is based on helping them find a great forever home, and we’re excited for the lucky animal that you’ll welcome into your home.

Here is a brief overview of our adoption process and our adoption fees are listed at the bottom of the page.

Completing an application is the first step towards bringing your new best friend home. Potential adopters will be subject to a phone or face to face interview, a home visit, and a reference check, including veterinary, prior to adoption. All family members, including canine, living in the home must meet the dog/cat prior to adoption.  We don’t adopt on a first come, first serve basis but try to match the best home for each animal.  We reserve the right to deny a potential home if we feel it is not in the best interest of the animal and does not necessarily reflect our feelings about you as a pet owner.

  2. Vet check of your resident dog/cat (if applicable) 
  3. Home visit/ home photos
  4. Reference check
  5. Foster parent will call you and conduct a phone interview 
  6. Schedule a meet and greet to interact with dog/cat
  7. Adoption contract completed and adoption fee is collected

Declawing cats is cruel, abusive, and painful, and can render a cat defenseless should it get outside. Here are some links with additional information on declawing.
