Finding our animals their perfect forever home is extremely important to everyone at Ayres. We do our best to match potential adopters with dogs who would best fit into their families and we pride ourselves in being completely honest when it comes to each animal and any quirks they may have. We understand that finding a new pet and adding them to your home can be a lot, and we strive to help make it as easy and happy of a process as possible!

If you see a dog/cat you see on our site, you can stop up anytime during open hours to meet that dog. It is always a good idea to call ahead of time, or even email us to find out if that dog is still available, if you have any questions you want to know before coming out or if you just want to see if that dog is a good fit for you or you for them. If a dog’s bio says that they require an appointment to meet them, it is either because they are in a foster home, or are still working on meeting new people and require our trainer to be present for the meet and greet.

Once you (and everyone in your home) meet the dog/cat you are interested in, we do have an adoption application that everyone has to fill out to begin the screening process.

For Dogs Only: If you didn’t do a meet and greet with any other dogs in the home, we do take that step next, too. Just like people. dogs don’t always hit it off, so a meet and greet always has to be done to ensure they are a good match for one another.

Once the adoption paperwork has been gone over, and everything looks great then we schedule a home visit with the dog to make sure all animals get along in the home and that it is a good place for said dog to call home. Don’t worry, we are absolutely NOT critical on home visits. Just want to make sure that it is safe for our dogs to live in.
