Adoption Policy

Many wonderful animals are waiting for loving homes. Our cats live in a cageless environment, our rabbits play daily in a cageless environment, and our dogs live in foster homes. So our animals are friendly and well-adjusted and we know their personalities.

Prior to adoption, all Red Door animals are spayed/neutered, vet-checked and microchipped. Adopters get a complete copy of all medical records. Cats are tested for FIV and FelV. Dogs are tested for heartworm. Both cats and dogs receive distemper and rabies vaccines; dogs receive the bordatella vaccine as well. The adoption fee is $100 for cats and rabbits, $300 for dogs. Adopters must be 22 years old. Current photo identification must show your correct address. You must be employed or have a stable source of income. Renters must provide a landlord’s name and phone number or a copy of current lease. And you must provide the name and number of your past or current veterinarian.

How to Adopt

As a potential adopter, you must complete our screening process, which includes an adoption application. Fill out this form, email it to us and we will call you within 48 hours to schedule an appointment with an adoption counselor. Adoption counselors strive to find the right home for each animal and the right animal for each home.

Adoption Center hours: Tuesday through Thursday, 12-5pm; Friday, Saturday & Sunday 12-4 p.m. Please call for weeknight hours. Please arrive one hour ahead of closing time. All adoptions are done by appointment only. Dogs available for adoption are not located at our shelter address.
