Minimum Requirements For Adoption:
Applicant must be at least 18 years old.
If applicant rents, landlord must verify that the home is pet-friendly.
All pets in the home must be altered, up to date on vaccines, and seen for regular check-ups.
Nearby out-of-state applicants are welcome to apply, but must come to us to meet and pick up the animal.
If you're applying to adopt a dog and already have one in the home, we require a dog introduction before adopting.
Adoption Application Process:
Adoption applications are processed Monday through Friday and can take up to 3 business days to complete depending on how many we have and how quickly your references get back to us. After you're approved, we will contact you via email to set up a meeting. The email will include a copy of our adoption contract for you to look over. If we have not heard back from you within 3 days, your application will be put on hold. Make sure you have contacted your landlord, vet clinic, and references to let them know we will be in touch so that we can process your application as quickly as possible.
We hold an adoption event every Saturday at Petsmart East (2216 E Springs Dr) from 10-2, but also have availability Tuesday through Friday at the shelter (1602 Blossom Lane) to do adoptions. We accept all forms of payment including cash, check, and card, but prefer card. If you are adopting a cat, please bring a cat carrier. If you are adopting a dog, please bring a collar and leash. At the time of adoption, we will provide you with the animals medical records as well as coupons and information to help your new family member transition into their forever home.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with our Adoption Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org!
