Learn more about the adoption process.
Many clients like our "Furry Foster Program." Here's how it works:
Upon approval, we often allow a short in-home one or two-night foster visit to determine if the pet and your family are well-suited. This eliminates returned adoptions and requires a credit card that is NOT charged unless the potential owner defaults in returning our pet.
Once it has been established that this is a great furever home for you and the pet, you will be asked to sign the adoption contract that spells out our obligations to you and your obligations to us, and your new pet. Once your contract is read and signed by you, you will receive a wonderful adoption package created by many volunteers that contains many gifts and educational materials along with medical record information for your vet and information on obtaining that first free vet visit.
We work hard to make the adoption process simple and enjoyable for you and your new pet.
ADOPTION DISCOUNTS AND FEES: (discounts may not be combined)
Seniors over 55 years of age receive a $10 discount per pet
Members of the military receive a $10 discount per pet with military ID card
Citizens with disabilities receive a $10 discount per pet with disability card
** Some pets are considered "Legacy" pets. Legacy pets are pets that we believe deserve a special price because they are a special animal. For example, this may often be a full-blooded breed with no pedigree paperwork. The fee for these very special pets will be slightly higher than normal, but usually will still remain drastically lower than that of a professional breeder.
You will find our pets to be a rare bargain, one of the main reasons our shelter has consistently had one of the highest adoption rates for a shelter of our size according to a Science Diet study. Why the bargain? Because all of the following is INCLUDED with your pet!
