"Be open to adopting a pet that needs you - not just a specific type of pet you think you need."

2021 eAdoption Policy

As of January 7, 2021, our entire adoption process has changed to meet the demands of adoption in consideration of COVID restrictions and precautions to ensure the safety and well being of our volunteers. PLEASE read the information below so you have an understanding of what to expect from us. If you are not satisfied with our process, we encourage you to go to your local shelter and adopt one of the equally deserving dogs or cats available that are accommodating “Walk-In” adopters.

Any adoptable animals for which we are accepting applications from the public will be on the Available Dogs and Available Cats pages. Please read through our Application & Pre-Approved Adopter Policies carefully.

Our Adoption Process

We encourage anyone considering adoption to complete an online application.  Once you become a “Pre-Approved Adopter” you will be eligible to adopt any of the dogs/cats available in the rescue for up to 4 months.  There is no obligation to adopt if pre-approved or up front cost to apply.   Pre-approved adopters receive “first look” at all new adoptables prior to opening applications for them to the public via a Private Pre-Approved Adopters link.

Apply

01

We appreciate you wanting to bring a rescued pet into your home. In order for us to understand your expectations so we can guide you to best matches, we need you to submit an adoption application

Virtual Home Visit →

02

Social Coordinators (SC) will reach out to introduce themselves VIA TEXT MESSAGE to schedule your Virtual Home Visit. You will discuss your family’s needs/wants in a pet which will prompt your SC to offer guidance/education topics for best practices and pet considerations to ensure expectations can be met with as little stress as possible for both your family and your new pet.

Pre Approval

03

Become a Pre-Approved Adopter. Once you are Pre-Approved, an Adoption Coordinator will discuss available pets with you based on your preferences and provide you with details on each to ensure your expectations match with the individual pets’ personality and behavioral needs.

Adopt

04

Meet & Adopt Your Pet! Once you have committed to a pet that matches your wants and expectations, you will be scheduled to meet and adopt as soon as possible!

*All Fur One does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, height, weight, marital status, housing/yard type or age of/number of children in the home.  With that, please note that not everyone who applies to adopt is guaranteed to become a Pre-Approved Adopter.

Additional Information

  • AFO is an all volunteer run, non-profit organization. We will make every effort to process your application as quickly as possible. Please be patient with us…the dogs and cats need our time and attention too.
  • We will not discuss adoption details regarding any particular pet if you are not a Pre-Approved Adopter.
  • We do not offer in person meetings for adoptable pets unless you are a Pre-Approved Adopter and have intentions of adopting the same day unless there is a justifiable reason not to.
  • Dog/Puppy Adoption Days are always scheduled for Saturdays between 10am & 2pm. If you are intending to adopt, be prepared to make yourself available on the pre-set adoption dates.
  • Cat/Kitten Adoptions are scheduled at a mutually convenient time for the Adoption Coordinator & the Adopter.

Can't Adopt? Foster!

Foster care allows dogs/cats to live in a home environment while awaiting permanent placement. A home environment is essential (less stress) for pets who are pregnant, nursing or still too young to be adopted. Apply below to learn more!
