Adoption Process:

Pay the adoption fee
* Stray animals may be pre-adopted before the stray hold is up. However, if an owner comes forward
before the animal is picked up by the adopter, the pet will be returned to the original owner and the
adoption fee would be returned to the adopter. When pre-adopted, the animal is scheduled to be altered.
When that is done, as l ong as no one has claimed the pet, the pet can go home with the adopter.
Unfortunately, we are not able to hold animals without the adoption process being completed. That
includes the payment of the adoption fee.
Adoptions are done on a first-come, first-served basis.
Applications can be emailed, and payment can be made via phone or via PayPal at Otherwise, we can not hold animals. After the adoption fee has been paid,
arrangements will be made to have the pet altered. No pets leave without being altered.
