Brief things to note before filling out the application below.
Pending approval, your application is valid for 1 year, and you will be eligible to request a hold on an individual animal for the Saturday adoption event. The hold does not require that you take the animal home, but ensures you get to meet and make an adoption decision prior to other applicants. Also pending approval, you will be able to acquire foster home contact information so you may inquire on personalities of specific animals.
We do offer midweek private adoption appointments for approved applicants pending staff, foster home, and vetting schedules. Because we are 100% foster-based, private adoption appointments are only offered for individual animals. If interested in viewing multiple animals at one time, we encourage you to attend our adoption events!
Please note, we do not have the ability to process adoption applications at our adoption events, so please plan accordingly. If an application is submitted after 5pm on Monday-Thursday, it will begin review the following day. If submitted on Friday-Sunday, it will begin review on Monday. It takes approximately 1-2 business days for an application to be processed.
Our weekly adoption events take place every Saturday from 10am-12pm at Pet Supplies Plus (Front Range Village, 2912 Council Tree Ave #100, Fort Collins, 80525). The holds for our events will be honored between 10am – 10:30am.
Please be aware that you will be taking home the animal you adopt at the event. We cannot hold animals to be picked up at a later date.
Our rescue includes a one-week trial period with the adoption of all of our animals. This allows you to take the animal home to 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 half the adoption fee.
