Frequently asked questions
HOW DO I ADOPT A PET?
We have an adoption process that involves a short application. We ask you for personal and veterinarian references, as well as a few questions to determine if you own your home or rent. If you rent, we will contact your landlord to affirm that the pet is welcomed. If everything checks out you go home with your new buddy!
ARE THERE COSTS?
Yes. Our adoption fees partially cover the cost of the care our animals receive while they stay with us. Each dog or cat that is placed in a new home has been spayed or neutered, and has been tested and vaccinated for many common conditions. The adoption fee for dogs is $150. and cats are $100.
WHAT IF THE ADOPTION DOESN'T WORK OUT?
We make every effort to match the right pet with the right home, but sometimes it just doesn't work. We encourage our adoptors to bring their current pets and children to meet the prospective pet at the shelter. Even so, there may be environmental or territorial issues once the new pet is in your home. In these cases we will be happy to offer another pet or take the pet back to find a better match. However, we do not offer refunds of the adoption fees, so take the time to make a selection that matches your situation.
