Our Adoption Process...
Every effort is made to place animals in good homes with responsible adopters and pet owners who are willing to make a lifelong commitment to the animal.
Potential adopters are counseled about the responsibilities of pet ownership prior to adoption. Because the key to reducing the number of unwanted animals is pet population control, each adopted animal is spayed or neutered.
Spaying and neutering is included in our adoption fees.
A lifetime commitment must be made to the animal, and the animal must be kept as a family pet.
We will only adopt to a person who is 18 years of age or older and has proper identification.
We won't knowingly adopt an animal to a person who:
- has a documented history of animal abuse or neglect.
- will use the animal for experimentation, cult rites, blood sports, or food purposes.
- will allow a declawed cat to roam freely outside.
- will confine a dog by a chain for extended periods of time.
- has repeatedly violated animal control laws.
- has been shown to be an irresponsible pet guardian
- is unaware of the adoption
