Our Adoption Process...
Once someone is interested in an adoptable pet located at our facility, they are required to fill out an adoption application. Once they have filled out their application we will call vet references and landlords. Once it is agreed that this animal is an ideal fit for the person and/or family, the animal is then completely vetted and sent home with their new family.
Humane America Animal Foundation, dba Adopt-a-Pet.com, is a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)(3) adoption advertising charity. Our mission (and passion) is to help
get homeless pets out of the shelters and into loving homes. Let us know what you think! Suggestion & Comment Box
