Additional adoption info

All adopters are asked to complete an adoption application. This application will ask for personal references and if you have previously had animals, there will be a veterinarian reference requested. If there are existing animals in the home, they must be current on any age appropriate vaccinations. Adoption fees vary according to the type of animal being adopted. Fees can be seen at our website www.poseyhumane.org. Once an application has been approved all adoption fees must be paid before the animal goes to their new home.
