If you know what type of personality or pet would best fit your lifestyle, we would love to help you find a match! We highly recommend visiting the shelter in person - please contact us if you would like to coordinate a meet and greet.
Step 2: Sleepover or Straight Adoption?
Once you have selected a pet, you have the option of a sleepover or straight adoption.
The shelter offers a trial period of 3-5 days to see how a selected pet fits into your lifestyle outside the shelter. It's a great opportunity to explore the pet's personality in a stress-free environment, whether you have other pets, children, or aren't ready to fully commit. After the trial period, you can schedule an adoption appointment or return the pet if it's not a good fit.
If you feel a strong connection or experience love at first sight with a pet, you have the option to adopt them right away. They can become a permanent part of your family. Straight adoption is convenient for many families, but it's worth mentioning that sleepovers are often encouraged.
Step 3: Adoption Appointment
If you have found you new forever friend, great! We will coordinate an adoption appointment. Appointments usually take 15 minutes and cover information such as:
review of microchipping information
discussion of the pet's medical history and (if any) upcoming medical treatments
signing of an adoption contract
payment of adoption fees (if applicable)
Adoptions include an initial medical exam, microchip, spay/neuter procedure (if not already complete), rabies vaccine, age-appropriate core vaccines, heartworm testing for dogs, fecal testing, deworming, as well as heartworm and flea prevention.
