step 1 – the Application
Fill out an adoption application. If you have a particular cat or dog you wish to adopt, please indicate their name on the application. If you don’t have a cat or dog in mind, no problem. Our wonderful match team will help you find the perfect companion.
Step 2 – The Interview
Our adoption team will review the adoption application and reach out. If the application is approved, we will schedule a meet with you and the cat(s) or dog(s) of your choice.
Step 3 – The Sleepover
If the meeting between you and the cat or dog goes well and you wish to proceed with the adoption. We will first jump in joy then we will figure out when you want the cat or dog to join you at your home. If you wish to take the cat or dog home from the meet, that is very possible and has happened before. If you need time to get all the supplies needed, that’s ok too. The foster will love to spend more time with the animal.
Our adoption starts with a trial period where the cat or dog gets to stay with you and adjust to your environment and routine. We want to make sure you see the animal when they are comfortable around you and are their true self. You can make the adoption official at any time. In the past we have had adopters who knew the cat or dog was right for them the moment they locked eyes with each other. Others want the weekend or a week or two to make sure. In cases where other animals are involved, some adopters have elected to take up to a month to make sure everyone is getting along before making the adoption official.
step 4 – The Paperwork
When you are ready to make the adoption official. We will send over the adoption agreement for you to review and sign. If there is an adoption fee, we will send you a link to where you can pay the adoption fee.
Once the adoption is finalized. We will send you the medical records for the cat or dog as well as transfer the microchip ownership to you.
Step 5 – Happily Ever After
We love pictures, videos, and updates. Please do keep us updated on how things are going with you and your new companion. Nothing makes us happier than seeing how happy the cat or dog is with you. Going on adventures and bringing smiles to your face. While it is not required to adopt, we love finding Instagram or Facebook Pages dedicated to your new cat or dog.
Our volunteers work hard to respond to all adoption applications as soon as possible. If you have any questions regarding our adoption process, please e-mail us.
