In order to be considered for an adoption today, you must be at least 18 years of age (current ID) and own your home, or have written permission from your current landlord. You must be willing to supply a lifetime of love, attention, and medical care. Pet ownership is a responsibility that shouldn't be taken lightly. In our effort to find the best possible home for each animal, we ask that you fill this application out completely and expect to spend time discussing it with one of our representatives. We also ask that you spend time with the animal you're interesed in before requesting an application. Applications generally take 24 hours to approve. Failure to provide any necessary information within the first 24 hours of submission may void the application. Your application can be completed here and submitted online. However, our adoption process is still 'First come, First served'. Whoever is here first on the day the animal becomes available, will have their application reviewed first
