How to Adopt

Adoption Procedure

During our country’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic all non-essential workers are asked to stay at home. While that can be a bit disheartening for some folks, we feel there is a silver lining to this situation, a fuzzy silver lining to be exact!

While so many people are staying at home, it’s opened up space and time in people’s daily lives to welcome in a new pet! We have implemented a system that allows us to place adoptable pets in loving, forever homes while still maintaining social distancing and mitigating potential exposure. We are currently offering adoptions of our pets through our “curbside” adoptions.

What’s a “curbside adoption” you ask? Well basically, we work really hard with our foster parents and adopters to collect tons of information on our pets and adoptive homes to best match our pets with adopters.

Once we’ve made the match, we offer a virtual meeting for our adopters to get to know the animal even better. After the virtual meeting is complete and the adopter is committed, we are then able to complete our application and adoption process entirely electronically.

Upon completion of the paperwork, we can then schedule a hands free curbside pick-up of the new pet (in their freshly sanitized crate, of course!). It doesn’t end there though; once the pet is in their new home, our team will be there every step of the way to help guide adopters.
