Adoption Application

Why All the Questions?

Our shelter greatly appreciates that you have decided to give one of our animals a second chance.  We do have several questions to ask and you may feel as though you are getting the third degree but the questions are only to ensure that the animal you have chosen will be a great match for you and your family.

All of the animals that you see at the shelter and on our website came to us from different situations. Some were neglected, some were abused, some were strays, and some were surrendered by their owner for different reasons like moving or the owner could no longer care for animal.

We want to make sure all the adopted pets have found their forever and last loving home so that’s “why all the questions”. We are asking because we care about you and your new pet. We want this adoption to be the match that lasts a lifetime.  When you are answering all those personal questions, think of the animal that you fell for with those big eyes and furry tail and realize, it’s worth all the trouble.

If you are completing this application prior to coming into the shelter, please let the shelter staff know you've already completed an application online so they can retrieve it and save everyone some time.
