Our Adoption Process...
Are you Looking to Adopt?
It is the primary goal of all of us at Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association to ensure that every animal in our charge is adopted into a lifelong, compatible, loving, safe and healthy home. In addition, we make every effort to guarantee that those animals that leave our Shelter will not produce offspring, thereby perpetuating the cycle of unwanted pets.
• Please give our staff 24 to 48 hours to process your application. In many instances your application can be approved within minutes, however at times staff will need additional time to contact a landlord or veterinary hospital for a reference.
• All animals adopted from Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association are spayed or neutered before going home. The cost for this procedure is included in the adoption fees.
• Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association will be able to hold an available pet for 48 hours if an approved adopter needs additional time before signing paperwork and making payment.
• Adoptable pets must be healthy, 8 weeks or older, current on vaccines/medical care, and dogs must have received a behavior evaluation. Pets lacking this criteria will not be able to be adopted or held for any potential adopter.
