Potential adopters are invited to discuss the general or specific pet they are interested in. They will be emailed an adoption application. We will review the applicant's living situation to assess whether or not the specific animal is a good match or not. We will then contact the applicant's references. Once approved, the applicant is sent the adoption agreement, a care sheet for the species/breed adopted, details of their diet etc. We then make arrangements for pick up or transport. If necessary a health certificate is signed by our veterinarian.
