All Fur One & One Fur All!

Pre-Approved Adoptions

Kittens & Cats

All adoptable cats and kittens are available on our website, which is updated regularly.  Pre-Approved Adopters are offered “insight” as to kittens that may be coming available soon based on age but in general, all adoptables are viewable by Pre-Approved Adopters and the public.

Commitment Deposits:

Any kitten listed as available (meaning accepting applications) but has not met the required age/weight/alter criteria to be cleared for adoption will be eligible for a “Commitment” deposit.  This is a $50, Non-Refundable, deposit intended to encourage adopters to complete their adoption at the time of clearance.  Once a commitment deposit is paid, the kitten will be marked as pending adoption and further applications will not be accepted.

Adoption Days:

Adoptions will be scheduled at a mutually convenient time for the Adopter and Adoption Coordinator.

Puppies & Dogs

As soon as AFO schedules a transport date, Pre-Approved adopters will be notified of a “Release Date” for which they can expect a text message with a link to all new adoptables.

The Preapproved Adopter Link contains the following:

  • Glamour Shot
  • Profile Details + Bio
  • Virtual Meet & Greet
  • *Pre-Approved Adopter Selection Form
  • **Schedule for Adoption Days & Pick A Pup Events
  • ***Pre-Approved Adopter Commitment Deadline (final date to commit to a dog/puppy before available dogs/puppies are publicly promoted as available with applications will be accepted)

*The Pre-Approved Adopter Selection Form is a quick form that instantly communicates to us the following:

  • If you want to commit to adopt a dog/puppy based on the virtual meet and greet provided OR if you prefer to meet dogs/puppies in person
  • If committing to adopt, you mark the dogs/puppies you would welcome into your home as a part of your family.  You can also mark that you would like us to match you with a dog/puppy that best meets your needs based on the Discovery Conversation you had during your Virtual Home Visit.
  • If you prefer to meet dogs in person, you will be notified at least 2 days in advanced of a “Pick a Pup” event and asked to check our website to view dogs/puppies that will still be available for adoption that day to determine if you still want to attend.

**Schedule of Adoption Days & Events will always be:

  • Adoptions for Adult dogs (7 months or over) will always be scheduled the first Saturday after cleared from quarantine (usually by day 3) and marked available (usually 5 days)
  • Adoptions for Puppies (Under 7 months) will always be scheduled for the first Saturday after cleared from quarantine (usually by day 15) and marked available.  Some puppies between the age of 4 months and 7 months will be cleared for adoption on the same schedule as the adults – but you will be notified in advanced.
  • Pick a Pup Events for dogs will always be the Sunday after the scheduled Adult Dog Adoption Day AND the Sunday thereafter Puppy Adoption Day.  Keep in mind these events will only be held if any dogs are still available on those dates.
  • Pick a Pup Events for puppies will always be the Sunday after the scheduled Puppy Adoption Day.  Keep in mind, these events will only be held if any puppies are still available on this date.

***Pre-Approved Adopter Commitment Deadline will always be no more than 7 days from the date the Pre-Approved Adopter Link is sent.

If you do not see an “Adoptable Dogs & Puppies” link directly below this message – it means we are not currently accepting applications on pets in our care, though it is subject to change frequently and often.  You can however, complete the Potential Adopter Email Sign Up, which will become available when applications are closed.
