Pet Adoption Forms

Our adoption fee helps defray veterinarian expenses, which includes current shots, spay/neuter, and feline leukemia or heartworm test. It’s not unusual for a pet in our care to need significant veterinary treatment including flea prevention, deworming and in some cases heartworm treatment. These expenses add up quickly and our minimal adoption fee helps to defray cost and provide for the next rescue.

Our adoption process starts with you filing an adoption application. Using Microsoft Word, you can copy and paste this into an email, fill in the answers and email it to us. Or, using Acrobat, you can print it out and send it to the address on the application. Please print out a copy for yourself and bring it with you when you come to adopt a pet.

The more information we have, the better we can match your requirements with the right dog and or cat. If you have seen a dog or cat on our website that you would like to meet, please indicate that in your application, realizing that any particular animal may already be pending an adoption by another adoptee. You will receive an email within a few days from our adoption coordinator.
