Our Adoption Process:

So you’ve met one of our cats or dogs whom you want to make part of your family? That’s great! What’s the next step?
First, you need to fill out an application. Applications are available on our “Applications/Forms” page, at our website: acarf.org. The application can be submitted online.
Although it helps to be the first person to file an application for a pet, this may not guarantee that you will actually be the chosen adopter. Our first concern must always be finding the best situation–for our adopters, and for our adoptable pets.
Once you have been approved to adopt an animal, we will make an appointment with our contracted veterinary care provider (Red Barn Veterinary Service) to have your pet spayed or neutered. Spaying/neutering our adopted animals is required by the State of Kansas. We also will microchip your pet. You will need to complete an adoption agreement form and pay the adoption fee. Our adoption fee is posted at the shelter, and is subject to change. Paperwork and fee payment must be completed during our weekday hours of operation: Tuesday through Friday, 11:30am to 5:00pm. Saturdays are for visiting and viewing only; no adoptions will be completed on those days, unless prior arrangements have been made. Special situations, such as adopters who live far away or are unable to leave work or school during weekday business hours, are dealt with on a case by case basis. We are excited that you are adopting from us, and want to make it as easy as possible!
Once your paperwork is completed, microchipping has occurred, and spaying/neutering is done, you can take your new pet home. Usually, you can pick up your pet the next day following surgery, either at the veterinarian’s office or at the shelter.
Some adopters choose to have their pet spayed/neutered with their regular veterinarian. If you do not use the services of our contracted vet and take your pet out unaltered, there will be a spay/neuter deposit of $50 (in addition to the adoption fee). The $50 deposit is refundable when you submit proof of spay/neuter, which must be done within 90 days. In this case, you would also be responsible for all spay/neuter charges. Some of our long-distance adopters find this option preferable to making two long trips.

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.
