Adoption Policy

After reviewing our pets, fill out the preliminary adoption application on our website ( We will review your application and contact you if we feel there is a good match. Next, we'll arrange for you to visit the pet in order to verify your compatibility. If everything goes well, we'll have you fill out an adoption contract, help with transferring the pet to your vehicle, and promptly begin crying with tears of joy.
