Thanks for submitting!

ATTENTION:  We do verify your references and contact the landlord if you rent. This is not an indication of approval, it is just part of our review process. We usually receive more than one application to review on each pet and will notify you once a decision has been made.

Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued pet!

Our dogs/cats are not first come/first serve. We place our animals with the home that is the best fit for them. Not all animals are good in all homes, whether it's their personalities, nature, or breed. We base our decision on what's best for the animal and the family. Thanks for understanding!

Adoption fee is to be paid by money order or cash-no checks please.
