  2. Our adoptions staff will respond to interested adopters on a first come first served basis. If we do not respond to your email it means the animal has already been adopted. If the adoption falls through we will contact the next person in line. We cannot take phone calls for adoption appointments at this time.

  3. Our adoptions staff will reach out to set up a time for a phone interview where they will discuss the information we know about the animal, and how it would do in your home. If you would like to adopt the animal, our adoptions staff will send you a link to pay the adoption fee online and fill out a digital copy of your adoption paperwork. Once paperwork is completed, we'll schedule an adoption appointment for you to meet the animal and take them home.

  4. If you do not show up for your appointment your adoption will be cancelled and the adoption fee will not be refunded.

About Lonely Hearts Club and HIPP: Through our Lonely Hearts Club, we offer discounted adoption fees for special pets who due to age, size, or other reasons may need extra help being adopted. In order to continue this important program and save animal lives, our HIPP (High Profile Pets) program adoption fees help underwrite those reduced adoptions. HIPP fees for an in-demand pet may be higher than our standard fees and are determined on a case-by-case basis.
