Thank you for wanting to adopt a rescued animal!

Every animal that comes into our care is thoroughly checked by a veterinarian. If not already done, animals of more than 5-6 months of age are spayed/neutered.  All our animals are vaccinated, de-wormed and de-flead prior to all adoptions.

** We have just started (early 2008) doing Bloodwork on all our cats/kittens that come into our care. Leukemia is becoming more prevalent so every cat that comes to us will now be FIV and Leukemia tested.

Kittens & Puppies will receive their first vaccine but the booster vaccine will have to be done by the new parents.

Our Adoption Process

The first step to all adoptions is an application form needs to be filled in and sent to the person who is looking after their adoption. After the application is approved, you will be contacted for a home visit.

A home visit is done for all adoptions, which allows us to meet you and your family and discuss any special needs and proper methods of introducing the new pet into your home.

After the home visit and you are approved, you can now go meet your possible new family member! We will arrange for you to go visit the animal you have chosen in the foster home.

If you decide after meeting him/her at that time you can take him/her with you that day!

We realize that to some our application process may be a bit more cumbersome but we hope that you can appreciate that these animals have all had a rough start in life and we are here to ensure that we find the best home for each animal and find the perfect match for you as well.

In order to do this we find the application form very helpful in finding the best fit for you both. The home visit is a way for us to meet you and as well answer any questions you may have and discuss the proper way to introduce the new animal into your home.

As you can imagine finding a home for these animals is difficult and our heart is in each and every one, so being able to meet you in person is a way for us to find comfort and joy in placing them with you! We are not here to “sell” pets we are here for their welfare and best interest and to find them a home for life!

We appreciate your cooperation and we hope you find this process worthwhile and take pride in knowing you are helping rescue an animal in need and that we together are helping make a difference in these animals’ lives.
