Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process begins when you complete an Adoption Application and return it to us. We review each application carefully. Every adoptable pet is different and we try to find the best fit for the pet AND the family. We do not have "set guidelines" so each one is considered for its own individuality.

There is also no "set fee". We charge an adoption for each animal to help recoup some of the vetting that we already have invested in them. If we did not, we would not be able to continue saving them. The donation amount depends on the breed and the size of the pet.

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.
