Jessamine County Animal Shelter's 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.
