Adoption Policy

Step 1: Let’s Begin!

Thank you for your interest in adopting a shelter pet! Shelter pets make the best pets. Our adoption partners at Beaumont Animal Care and Dowlen Road Veterinary Center receive pets every day and may have the perfect pet for you. They list their available animals on PetFinder.com. Not every animal that is available for adoption is posted online. We encourage you to go by and visit each location.

Step 2: Matching Expectations

Our Adoption Coordinators will review your adoption questionaire and answer any questions you may have about the type of pet you are looking for. Our team members work with our pets everyday so that we may give you detailed information about their personalities. Our goal is to help you find the perfect pet based on your personality and lifestyle.

Step 3: Meeting the Animal

After completing the initial paperwork, you are then encouraged to visit the dogs and cats. You are allowed to take him or her out in the visiting designated area. For dogs, you may take them to our outside enclosure—they love that! Please be aware that when they are comfortable in a home, they will relax, and their personality may be different than while in the shelter. We recommend you bring all household members to visit with the pets you are interested in. We may also schedule a dog visit to bring your family dog in if you are looking for an additional dog. When love strikes, simply let your Adoption Coordinator know that you would like to proceed with adoption.

Step 4: Adoption Counseling & Fees

Our Adoption Coordinators are trained to give you the best guidance to prepare you and your new pet for a successful transition home. When finalizing your adoption, our Adoption Coordinator will:

Give you information and advice specific to your home and new pet
Talk about any known medical conditions or behavioral special needs of your new pet
Review adoption fee & benefits: This fee offsets some of the costs associated with providing for our animals – this includes housing, food, medical care, enrichment, behavior modification and more.
Dog adoption fee varies depending upon age, breed, and medical/behavioral conditions. This fee includes spay/neuter surgery, heartworm test over 6 months, one or more set of vaccinations, deworming, flea/heartworm prevention, microchip, and personality evaluation. Adoption fees may vary.

Cat adoption fee varies depending upon age, breed, and medical/behavioral conditions. This fee includes spay/neuter surgery, FeLV/FIV testing, one or more set of vaccinations, deworming, flea/heartworm prevention, microchip, and personality evaluation. Adoption fees may vary.

Step 5: Return Policy

Adoption is a rewarding lifetime commitment. Our most successful adopters are those who take their time in finding the right pet for their personality and lifestyle. We hope that you and your pet will be lifelong companions, but we understand that life can get in the way of even the best of plans. Beaumont Pets Alive offers a 3 day adjustment period within which you can evaluate the pet’s progress and your adoption decision. If, within those 3 days, you determine your recently adopted pet isn’t a good fit or you find yourself unable to provide necessary medical care, you may return the animal to BPA and receive a partial refund. We encourage you to have your veterinarian examine your pet within the 3 day adjustment period.
