UNDERSTANDING THE ADOPTION PROCESS

Please review the following before working on your application.

Have you discovered a pet you wish to adopt? Great! Now, the first step is to contact the foster parent. . All of the fostered pets shown on our website list their foster parent with contact information. Please review the application form before contacting the foster parent. This will help you consider some of the responsibilities you will have toward your new pet.  You may also have concerns about how the animal will fit your home environment. When you contact the foster parent you will be able to discuss your concerns with someone who has first-hand experience with the pet.

If you are satisfied that you really want to adopt the animal and you feel encouraged by your interview with the foster parent, then you should go ahead and complete the Adoption Application Form as indicated below.  The form will be forwarded to the foster parent.

The foster parent and members of our Board of Directors will review your application and make a decision based on what is best for the pet. If your application is approved you will have the benefit of an experienced foster parent when concerns arise.
