Adoption FAQs

  • Why is the adoption application so long?
    The information on the application is requested so we can ensure the best possible home for our pets and the best possible pet for your family. There may be more than one application for any adoptable pet listed and we do not adopt on a first come first serve basis. In order to find the best home for the pet and the best pet for your family the questions on the application help us to make the best match possible.
  • Does the completion of an application obligate me to adopt?
    No. No obligation to adopt.
