Adopting a family pet is a big decision and serious responsibility.  It is an obligation to care and provide for that animal for the rest of itís natural life.  We take every precaution, therefore, to ensure that our rescued animals go to loving, caring homes that are best suited to them.

Your level of commitment can be shown by visiting your chosen animal often to spend time together. By bonding in this way at the shelter, the stress of transition will be greatly decreased.

If you are interested in giving a homeless animal a chance for a better life and are ready to make the commitment, now and in the long term, please contact Dorothy Andrews at the shelter. She will be pleased to meet with you to discuss shelter policy and identify special needs.

You will be asked to complete an application form and provide references.  There will be a waiting period of about 5 days while references are checked and time is taken to make sure that the animal is ready to move to its new home. If we receive more than one application for a specific animal, the family we feel best suited to the animal will be the first contacted.

We will get in touch with you as soon as your application is approved and arrangements will be made for you to pick up your new family member.  Please remember to provide a collar and leash, and possibly a travel cage, to get your pet home safely.

The adoption fee is payable at the time the animal changes hands. This fee will cover only some of the costs for providing for the animal while in our care. This includes spaying or neutering, deworming and initial vaccinations (except rabies).

We believe that every companion animal deserves a loving home.
