ADOPTION PROCESS




Basic Guidelines

1 - Spaying or neutering will be done prior to adoption.

2 - Cats and rabbits must leave in a carrier / dogs on a leash with a properly fitted collar.  We do not allow prong collars.

3 - Be sure you can come during our open hours: 12-3 pm Mon/Wed/Fri/Sat

4 - To adopt you must be 18 years or older 
 
5 - If renting, written landlord permission is required
 
6 - We do long distance adoptions, but do not ship or transport pets

7 - If you cannot keep your adopted pet, we ask that it be returned to our Shelter.
 
8 - Processing may take up to 24-48 hours.




Instructions

All lines on the application require an answer or "n/a" (except driver's license). Please answer all questions completely, and give extra details where you can. Impress us with your experiences and plans!  Even the best pet owners have accidents and problems, so we encourage you to explain the circumstance(s).



FALSE INFORMATION, OR FAILURE TO MENTION A PET, CAN RESULT IN YOUR APPLICATION NOT BEING APPROVED



Am I approved?

Completed applications are reviewed by a committee and the most appropriate home for that particular pet will be chosen. All applications will remain on file for 2 months. We try to contact all applicants, but due to limited funding and volunteers, sometimes only the chosen family can be notified (emailed/called).  If you are not notified it doesn't mean your application was not acceptable, it may just mean someone else was chosen from the many applications submitted for that pet.  We want the best matches so these pets are not homeless again. For "high demand" pets, applications pour in, unfortunately only one family can get the pet, so several others will be disappointed. To show you've read our entire process, enter the words "we care" when asked on the application if you have read our process.
