Adoption Process


The Process



Fill out an application so you’re eligible to adopt your new best friend.



Once you’ve been approved, you can begin your search. While we do offer private adoption appointments, our upcoming events are a good place to start.

We offer trial periods to ensure it’s true love.

1. Apply

In this application, you’ll provide:

  • Important information about your home, lifestyle, and existing pets.
  • Proof of home ownership (if you own) or pet addendum/landlord approval (if you rent).

Please fill out an application PRIOR to adoption events. We do not have the ability to process applications at events.

Once we receive your application, we’ll use this information to help determine your adoption eligibility, as well as which breeds, ages, or energy levels may suit you best. We’ll then contact you to discuss the next steps.

2. Adopt

Once your application has been submitted and approved, you’re invited to begin the search for your best friend. Please check out our Adoptable Animals page.

While we do offer private adoption appointments, our upcoming adoption and community events are a good place to meet our animals and connect with foster families.

Please note: Once your application has been approved it will remain on file for 1 year and you will be eligible to request a hold on an individual animal.

The hold does not require that you take the animal home but ensures you will get to meet and make an adoption decision prior to other applicants.

3. Love

We include a trial period with the adoption of all of our animals to guarantee true love (we know it will be). This allows you to take the animal home and ensure it is the perfect fit for you, your family, and lifestyle. If it does not work out, we accept the animal back into rescue and refund the adoption fee.
