When an individual or family comes to the Sanctuary to adopt a pet, they must first fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire. This will help our adoptions team to match the adopter with the right pet for them. If the adopter is interested in meeting a specific pet they have seen at one of our events or online, they will meet with an adoption counselor to discuss their needs as well as the needs of the pet they are interested in. If the pet they are interested in has any medical or behavioral conditions that the adopter should be aware of, we will discuss these issues and will set up a consultation with a member of our veterinary medical staff to further discuss any concerns the adopter may have.
View the Adoptable Dogs and Adoptable Cats pages on the web site to see who is available for adoption at the moment. If you see a potential new furry family member, contact us to schedule an appointment to meet with an Adoption Counselor.
Our Adoption Counselors have worked closely with our pets and have knowledge of their behavior, likes & dislikes, and other personality traits. We require that all members of the household are present during the adoption process to ensure that the chosen pet is compatible with everyone. If you already have a dog and are adopting another, we suggest that you bring in your dog for an introduction.
If your chosen pet has any medical conditions, we will arrange a pre-adoption consultation with our Veterinary Technician. Some pets may also require a post-adoption consultation to ensure the pet is adjusting well to his new home.
If you are adopting a dog, we will schedule a home check to ensure that the home is safe for the dog. Potential hazards will be discussed in order for the adopter to address the issues before the new pet comes home.
Once you and your Adoption Counselor agree that you’ve found a great match, it’s time to complete the adoption process and take home your new best friend.
