Our Adoption Process...
LifeLine Animal Project Adoption Process
We’re excited that you are considering adopting a homeless dog or cat!
The first step in the adoption process is to fill out the application for the dog or cat you are interested in adopting. You can do this under the animal’s listing on our website, http://lifelineanimal.org . The application will be reviewed by one of our experienced adoption counselors. At that time, you will be contacted with any questions and/or to set up a time to come and meet the pet you have chosen.
If you are applying for a dog, we encourage you to bring your dog to meet the new dog. After all, he/she is part of the family too, right? If all goes well, we will then set up a home visit. Our trained staff will bring the new dog to your home to make sure everyone is comfortable with the new family member and to make sure the new dog is comfortable in your home. This visit is not meant to be intrusive and we do not pry into your business. It is only meant as a safeguard. We do not always perform a home visit for cats, but we reserve the option to do so if we feel it is needed. After that, the adoption contract is signed, the vet records transferred and the adoption fee paid. The dog or cat stays with you at this time unless other arrangements have been made.
All of our dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. Dogs are also tested for heartworms and cats for FeLV/FIV. If a dog has been with us long enough, he/she has also received some basic obedience training with our in-house trainer and staff. The adoption fee for cats is $65, dogs are $85.
Now, what are you waiting for? Visit http://lifelineanimal.org and fill out the application. We’ll talk to you soon.
