The adoption process:

All our dogs go out with Distemper and Rabies vaccinations, others have also been vaccinated against Bordatella. In addition, they have been heartworm-tested, de-wormed and spayed/neutered

Our main concern, when adopting out an animal, is that it be placed in a good home where it can be loved as a pet should be. We reserve the right to refuse any potential adoption. To insure that the animal fits into your environment we take the following steps:

bulletIf you are interested in one of our animals we ask you to fill out a non binding pre-adoption form (print it out, fill it in and bring it to the next adoption or mail in before hand) which provides us with some background information about the environment into which the animal will be placed. This form will be screened and a determination is made if the animal will be a good match. We take in consideration your family and life style to insure that you will be happy with the animal you adopt.
bulletIf the adoption is approved you will be asked to sign a legally binding contract that states among other things, should it be found that the animal is not compatible with its new home or for any other reason you are unable to keep the animal, it will be returned to us.
bulletFinally, you will be asked for a donation of $125 for a cat or $200 for a dog. These donations offset the cost of caring for the animals as well as veterinary costs. Remember, all animals have their shots and have been neutered.

If you already have a pet and are thinking of adopting another, it would be a good idea to bring your dog to one of our adoptions ( see our calendar for time and place) to see how the two interact.
