Adopting From Us
We are committed to placing animals in homes compatible with your and the animal's needs.
Review our adoption policy to make sure it is acceptable to you (see below).
Complete our Adoption Application form.
An adoption coodinator will review your application and ask questions to make sure the animal will be a good match for your home.
If a successful match has been made, you may take the animal home. The adoption is finalized with the signed Adoption Contract and payment of the adoption fee. You will receive an information packet which should answer many of your questions about animal care.
We will follow up with you in about two weeks to make sure that you and the animal are getting along well. However, we encourage you to contact your adoption coordinator at any time with any concerns you may have.
We adopt on a first-come, first-served basis. To hold a specific animal you must make a deposit of the adoption fee. The deposit is refundable if you ultimately decide not to adopt the animal.
We require cats and kittens to be kept indoors at all times.
We require dogs to be kept indoors as much as possible and not left out at night.
We discourage declawing cats (and can advise on alternatives).
We do not adopt small kittens to families with young children.
We require both a photo ID & proof of current address (e.g. driver's license or recent utility bill).
We ask that people who rent show proof that pets are allowed.
Payment in cash is required at our off-site adoption center and preferred at the sanctuary.
($60 for 2) $50/teen (6-12 mo.) ($75 for 2) $50/kitten ($75 for 2)
All cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for FeLV/FIV, treated for fleas and ear mites, microchipped and litter-box trained prior to adoption.
All dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and treated for fleas prior to adoption.
Adoption fees help to offset rescue and medical expenses but rarely exceed them. Additional donations are always welcome.
