Adoption Policy

If you would like to adopt one of the animals below, YOU MUST SUBMIT AN ONLINE APPLICATION AT WWW.BIDEAWEE.ORG/ADOPT. Adoptions are by appointment only, so after one of our Bideawee Matchmakers reviews your information they will contact you to potentially set up an appointment.

What we need in order to process an adoption is a photo ID with your current address or a photo ID and something that can verify your current address (Lease, Bank Statement, Utility Bill, etc.). We also need proof that you're allowed to have a pet where you live.

We don't hold our animals and our adoptions are same day.
The adoption processing fee depends on the age and size of the animal.
