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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
