For our complete adoption policies, guidelines, and fee schedule, please click here.
If the pet is still available when we receive your application and your application is a good match, we may contact you for a home visit, which is a requirement before an application is approved.
We may ask you to consider another pet instead, either because we have several good homes for the same pet or because we believe another pet is better suited to your family.
We may decide to take more applications before placing the pet for adoption. Some pets have special needs, and it is in their best interest to wait for a perfect placement.
We may decline your application, either due to your pet history or your current circumstances for care and keeping of a pet. While saying 'no' is hard, sometimes it is in everyone's best interest. You may wish to reapply if your circumstances change.
You may change your mind or decide that none of our current pets are right for you. Withdrawing your application does not affect your ability to adopt from us later.
