Adoption Policy

WE ARE CURRENTLY ONLY OPEN BY APPOINTMENTS! We're sorry for any inconvenience!

Due to COVID, an application must first be filled out and approved before setting up a meet and greet with an animal that has your interest. The form is quite detailed and will provide us the information necessary for us to continue to process your application. It also helps us find the right fit for you and your family. We will begin processing your application form absolutely as soon as possible.

When coming in, you need to sign our visitor’s log.

For cats… You will be able to visit with our cats in one of their “free-roaming” housing areas.

For dogs… once we get your application approved and what dog(s) you are interested in, we will schedule a meet and greet. Sometimes it could take more than one meeting to find out if you are a good fit.

Adoptions are generally not available to go home on the same day as the application.


Important steps in the process will include contacting your veterinarian, personal reference, and landlords. Approved applications will be kept on file for up to 90 days.
If multiple applications are pending on the same animal, we will use our considerable experience to try to make the best match. All things being equal, the application with the best veterinary care will take precedence.

You will be informed of the approval status of your application. If your application has been rejected you will be informed of the reason(s) for rejection and actions you can take to be approved at some point in the future.

If your adoption is approved, a shelter staff member will contact you to discuss any questions you may have and schedule a date to pick-up of your new pet.
Noah Project’s Shelter Director must approve all applications
