Adoption Procedures
Adoption Process

When you decide to adopt a shelter pet, we recommend that you allow time to visit and spend time with the pet you have selected. The shelter knows that making the decision to adopt a new pet into your home is a serious responsibility. Your new pet could go through a stressful period of adjustment when transitioning to life in your home. The shelter has a seven day trial period for all adoptions to insure that both you and your new pet are compatible. Potential owners will be asked to fill out an application and agree to the shelter’s adoption procedures. The adopter agrees to provide all medical care and treatment needed for the animal, this includes a yearly checkup, required vaccines, heartworm prevention and flea and tick prevention. A fecal examination is highly recommended for your new pet. Your pet has received a deworming prior to adoption, but due to the life cycle of parasites, the initial deworming may not remove all of the parasites.
