The goal of our adoption program is to match the animals in our care with the appropriate forever home. Likewise, we are here to help you find the right pet for your needs. To assist us in the matchmaking process, we have developed guidelines and a simple adoption process for prospective adopters. Please understand that this process is not intended to frustrate anyone, but to prepare adopters for the life long commitment to their pet.
Before Adopting Please Consider the Following:
Be realistic about your expectations and time you have to devote:
- Do you work long hours?
- Do you like to get outdoor exercise or are you more of a couch potato?
- Do you have furniture or rugs that you are concerned about being soiled or scratched?
- Does anyone in your home have allergies?
It may take several months for your new pet to fully settle in. Are you prepared to give a pet this time to adjust and for training?
Adopting a pet requires a financial commitment for the life of the animal. Familiarize yourself with the costs (check with veterinarians, pet supply stores, trainers, etc.) and be prepared to commit to the animal’s care for life.
Adopting a pet is a personal decision. Because we are making a match, we do not adopt out pets as gifts or to be given to other people.
