Adoption Process

Our goal is to provide the best possible match for you and your dog or cat.

Our staff will work with you to identify your interests and needs to provide the best possible match for your home. Once that match has been determined, please follow these steps to complete the adoption process.

Meet the Animal You Wish to Adopt

You must meet the dog or cat you wish to adopt before we will begin processing your application. You can visit with the dogs and cats any time during normal business hours, Tuesday through Saturday from 1:00pm to 6:00pm. Feel free to call ahead to check on the status of any animal you want to see before you come in to visit. We highly recommend that everyone in the family or those who will be around the animal on a consistent basis come in and meet the animal.

Complete and Submit Adoption Application

You must complete an adoption application to begin the process. Our goal is to make sure a good match is made between the animal and the adopter. Please note that submitting an application alone, neither guarantees you any priority in the adoption of the dog or cat, nor does it obligate you to adopt one of our dogs and cats.

Application Review

The application review will begin only after you have met with the animal you wish to adopt. We will speak to your veterinarian to confirm that your existing pets are fully vetted. If you rent or lease we will verify with your property owner to ensure you are permitted to adopt a pet. We will also speak with your personal references.

Schedule a home visit

Once the above sections of the application have been reviewed and approved, a home visit will be scheduled to confirm that you can provide a safe environment for one of our dogs or cats.

Meet and Greet

If you are adopting a dog and currently have a dog living in your household it will be necessary to set up a meet and greet. This will show us if there may be any issues between the animals.

Application Approved

Once the process is complete and the application is approved, you will sign an adoption contract and pay the adoption fee (as listed below) before bringing your new pet home. Some things you will need to purchase supplies before bringing your new dog home include but are not limited to a leash, collar, ID tag, food, bowl, and crate or bed.

After the adoption, a follow-up call will be made to see how everything is going with your new pet.
