Our Adoption Process:

Eleventh Hour Rescue has an application process and reference check prior to any dog or cat leaving the care of EHR. Adoptions conducted at adoption events are conditionally based on our application procedure.

Please submit an online application before contacting Eleventh Hour at

Please note that we will let you know by phone or email when we approve your application. Most applications are approved within 24 hours; however, it could take up to 5 days to contact your veterinarian(s) and/or references.

Please keep in mind that the dog or cat you are interested in may have other applicants and/or may not be a good match for your family.

Our adoption fee is a minimum of $250 per dog and $100 per cat. Most of our dogs and cats are altered, up-to-date on shots and microchipped. If an unaltered pet is adopted out, the cost of the spay/neuter procedure is covered under the adoption fee, and the new owners must agree to have the pet spayed or neutered within 30 days. An additional $100 deposit that will be returned to you with proof of spay/neuter. We have low-cost options for spay and neuter procedures. We are not subsidized by any government grants or agencies. Our adoption fees cover only a small portion of what we spend on saving and vetting these animals. Upon adopting a pet, you will be asked to sign a contract.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
