Our Adoption Process:

Thank you for choosing to adopt an animal. By choosing to adopt a pet you have already joined the ranks of those saving lives and for that we thank you. We hope that your life with your new pet will be as happy and fulfilling as you do. Because adopting a pet is a life-long commitment and not one to be entered into lightly, we ask that you read the below adoption process carefully and help us to help you find your new family member.

When you visit the Center you will be asked to fill out a "Meet Your Match Form" so that we may assist you in choosing the pet which best meets your life style.You can see the pets and if you are interested in adopting a specific pet, we have both indoor and outdoor areas where you can visit with a pet to get to know them better.

If you choose a specific pet you will be required to fill out a contract . If the pet is already spayed or neutered you can take your pet home that day. If they are not, then you can pick your pet up after the spaying or neutering is done.

We must ask that you:

Are at least 18 years of age.
Possess a valid Driver’s License or State Identification ID.
Either own your own home or, if you rent, can provide a copy of your lease stating you can have pets.
Have all members of the family or residents of the home present to meet the potential pet.
Be prepared to bring any resident dogs in to introduce to all potential adopted dogs prior to adoption.
Your satisfaction is very important to us. We will make every possible effort to make the adoption process as simple as possible, while still ensuring that animals are placed responsibly.

We ask that you read carefully and understand the following:

Pets are adopted “as is” - we do NOT make any guarantees as to the health, age, and/or temperament of any pet we adopt out.
A pet CANNOT be adopted as a gift for another person.
ALL dogs and cats will be sent directly from RCACAC to be spayed or neutered (exceptions can be made due to weight and medical condition).
We retain the right to REFUSE an adoption to anyone.
Adoption fees will not be returned if adopted pet is returned back to the shelter.
Adoptions are completed in a “first come, first serve basis.” In certain cases, we do take multiple applications on an individual animal to best place that animal in an appropriately matched home.
We can’t place a hold on a pet or take your application online.

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.
