Come Meet Our Pets...
Please check our Facebook page for all of our Fundraising & Adoption Events.
All of our animals are fully vetted, vaccinated, spayed/neutered, microchipped and come with a health certificate before adoption.
Before adoption we have set in place a foster to adopt program. The foster application and contract must be signed before our animals go to the potential adopters home for 2 weeks before legal adoption.
We require the potential adopter to fill out our application, the application is then processed by a board member, a home inspection is required and then a meet & greet. You will be required to fill out an adoption contract as well. Please email us for an online application at PAWSHV@gmail.com
