Come Meet our Pets:

Our adoption events are on selected Saturdays 12PM-5PM at the PETCO store in Jackson Plaza in Cookeville. Private appointments are available upon request. Become a fan on Facebook! Please contact us to make arrangements to meet a particular pet as not all pets attend each adoption event.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process starts with an approved Adoption Application and an interview with one of our adoption coordinators. Our adoption donations are usually $75 for cats and start at $150 for dogs - depending on the animal, breed, etc. We require a signed contract. Our pets must live primarily indoors, and be adopted to homes who demonstrate their desire to add another family member to their home.

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.
