DOG ADOPTION PROCESS
Dog and Cat Adoptions are every Wednesday and Thursday 6 PM - 8 PM
and every Saturday 11 AM - 3 PM at the Pet Refuge Shelter. Or simply apply online today!
See our Events Page for other adoption dates and times or any last minute changes to these times.
Our adoption process is designed to find the best possible homes for our animals and the best possible animal for our adopters household. It starts with an application and two interviews to find the best fit. The application includes some checks as applicable to each situation. If the adopter has other animals we help with the introduction to help ensure harmony in the household. Depending on each situation this process usually takes 48 hours.
ALL ADOPTIONS INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING SERVICES
