All adoptable pets receive basic health exams, vaccinations, are spayed or neutered and are microchipped. We work hard to know each animal and to help you make a good match.
The Animal Adoption Process
Our pet adoption process is friendly and thorough. The adoption process begins when you visit our animals. Our trained staff and volunteers are always on hand to help you choose a pet that is right for you.
Once you have met your pet, you will complete an application and an adoption counselor will review it with you. The entire process may take an hour or a few days, depending on the animal and your situation. You may complete an application before meeting an animal, which can speed up the process.
Animal Adoption Requirements
Address Verification and Rental Permission
Anything with your current name and address will do, such as a driver’s license, checkbook, utility bill or lease.
Also, if you rent, your landlord or management office must confirm that pets are allowed and any restrictions, such as weight limits, type and number of pets allowed, etc. We prefer written confirmation such as a lease or a statement on letterhead from the management office or owner.
