Our Adoption Rules are as follows:

  1. We require a fully completed application for adoption which must be approved prior to adopting a pet.  When submitting an application please notify your references and your veterinarian that we will be calling.  If a reference does not call us back we will not be able to approve your application, or it will delay your application.  
  2. If you have other animals in your home ALL must be up to date on vaccinations, and must be fixed or have a medical reason confirmed by your veterinarian why they are not
  3. You may still come to the shelter to meet a pet for adoption but will not be able to adopt unless your application is approved

At the shelter there are programs for kids, teens and special needs individuals in progress.  One of these individuals may be assisting you in the adoption.  Please help them learn and be patient.  Every volunteer is doing their best to help!
