Our Adoption Process...
First, you will need to fill out an Adoption Application, available or at our adoption events. Once we receive your application we will review it, along with other submitted applications. We will make a decision based on the needs of the animal and the potential for their forever home to provide those needs.
We will then notify you to discuss any questions on the application if needed. Arrangements will be made for the signing of the adoption contract, fee payment and pet delivery.

Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply. You can find information about the shelter or rescue group caring for this pet, and their adoption procedures,
