A volunteer will review your application to ensure the dog or cat you have chosen is a good fit for your family. We receive multiple applications for the same dog or cat and it is our intent to ensure the best placement for both you and the dog or cat. If we feel the dog or cat you are interested in will not be the right fit, we are always happy to work with you to find the perfect addition to your family.
After reviewing your application we will speak to your veterinarian to confirm your current and previous pets are up to date on vaccinations and have been on regular heartworm preventative. We will also contact your references.
Approved applicants will receive a phone call from our coordinator/volunteer to set up a meet & greet. We will then bring the dog or cat to your home to ensure this is a good fit for ALL family members (including other pets and children if you have them.)
All adoption fees are payable the day the contract is finalized.
Please note our adoption fees are as follows:
Cats over 6 months - $100
Kittens 2 months to 6 months - $150 or $275 for a pair
**A NOTE ON KITTENS**
Kittens need interaction with other kittens for healthy social development. For that reason, preference will be given to homes adopting two kittens at the same time (they don’t have to be littermates) or to homes with relatively young, friendly cats already in the home. Kitten adoption fees are $150 for one or $275 for two.
