Adoption Applications & Fees

The Adoption Process

  • IF YOU RENT YOUR HOME: Renters need a letter from their landlord or property manager on letterhead, stating they are allowed to have a pet, and if there are any restrictions on breed or weight. Bring this letter with your application.
  • IF YOU OWN YOUR HOME: Home owners, please bring proof that you own your home; a mortgage statement, or property tax statement.
  • If you are wanting to adopt a dog and you own a dog…you will need to do a meet and greet with your own pet. Leave them in your car with someone and the air conditioner running until a staff or volunteer tells you to bring your dog to the meet-and-greet area.
  • If you are adopting a cat, please bring your own carrier.
  • We have a limit of two feline (cat/kitten) adoptions per household.

Additional Adoption Information

We test animals for the following:

  • Dogs: Good with other dogs, if there is food aggression, reaction to being walked on a leash, noting any other attributes we may know.
  • Cats: Good with other cats, litter box trained, noting any other attributes we may know.

We may know if an animal is possibly house trained, yet cannot guarantee any animal in our campus is. We do not know if a dog is good with cats unless we are advised by a person surrendering the animal, or how they react to our community cats that live on the property. Our animals have limited contact with children, if you want to know if one of our “furbabies” is good with them, we advise that you come in: Go through our interview process and once a “furbaby” is decided on, we will arrange a meet and greet with you.
