Adoption Policy

6/18/2020: Yamhill County is in Phase 2, here's our changes:
1. We are open for cat/kittens meet and greet's, we are limiting access to two people, no young children please.
2. Our dog's will be by appointment only and this will be permanent.
3. We are still very short staffed, please be patient with us, sending us multiple e-mails and calling will not increase your chances of finding your furever pet.

To adopt one of our animals, you will need to do and bring the following:
1. Meet and Greet with animal you are interested in.
2. Bring proof of home ownership (mortgage statement), if renting, then authorization from landlord on company letter head, you will also need their phone number for us to verify. (animal will not be adopted without this information)
3. Picture ID
4. If adopting a cat, you will need a carrier, or you can purchase a card board carrier from us.
5. Adoption fee in credit/debit or cash, we no longer accept checks.
6. If adopting a dog, you must bring other dogs in your home
Please if adopting bring all family members that are living in house, so we can make sure everyone is a good fit.
