What is South Lake Animal League’s adoption process?
Our adopters must be at least 21 years old. Have children in the household? Please read our additional age guidelines for adopting ( https://theanimalleague.org/age-guidelines-for-adopting/ ). If you rent, you will need to provide a copy of your Pet Addendum. This can be emailed, or brought in person during your Meet & Greet. You can also provide the Adoption Team with your landlord’s phone number, however this often delays the process as they play phone-tag. If you have current pets, you will need to provide proof that they are up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines and are on a heartworm preventative (dogs only). This can be emailed or brought in person during your Meet & Greet. You can also provide the Adoption Team with your vet’s phone number, however this often delays the process as they play phone-tag. Dogs currently residing in your home should also attend your Meet & Greet – the exception being if your current dog is younger than 4 months, does not travel well, or if you are driving more than 2 hours to reach us. We ask all potential adopters to provide 3 personal references. Please let your references know to expect a call from us, or to at least monitor their voicemail. Lastly, we require all members of the household in which a pet will be residing to be present for a Meet & Greet. We understand that sometimes parents wish to surprise children, or people may wish to surprise a significant other. While we appreciate the sentiment, this almost never ends well and we end up having to rescue the pet a second time. Being present at a Meet & Greet helps to ensure you are finding the very best match for you and your family, and that the adoption will last. Please note that certain pets and certain breeds (specifically herding or working breeds) will have more thorough requirements such as experience with the breed, a fenced yard, or an active lifestyle. For information about a specific pet’s needs, please contact the Adoption Team. Information regarding adoption fees can be found here. Please DO NOT email us fee requests, instead, please CALL the Adoption Team at (352) 429-6334. - https://theanimalleague.org/adoption-fees/ Please view our very informative Facebook note on how our adoption process works for even more information: https://www.facebook.com/notes/south-lake-animal-league/how-our-adoption-process-works/10155349464889492/
