Our Adoption Process:Adoption Procedure
Caring For Creatures' goal is to place as many of our animals as possible into loving and responsible homes. Our adoption process is thorough and we make every effort possible to correctly match animal and human.
If you are interested in adopting one of the CFC dogs or cats, the first step is to complete our Adoption Application. This form may be printed from the website, completed, and faxed, mailed, or brought to the sanctuary. If CFC receives more than one application for an animal, the applications are considered in the order they are received. If more than one adopter is a good match for the animal in question, the application received first will be selected. You may fax your Adoption Application to: (434) 842-1308.
ADOPTION FEES: Cats: $75, Dogs: $125. For unaltered animals (typically this would include kittens and puppies), $25 of this fee is refundable to adopter when the spay or neuter procedure has been done. In order to receive the refund, Adopter must have the procedure completed on or before the date designated in their Adoption Agreement. Refund will be mailed once CFC receives the "Written Statement of Sterilization By Licensed Veterinarian" provided at the time of adoption. CFC is vigilant in following up with adopters to confirm the spay/neuter procedure has been completed on a timely basis!
