Finding the Right Animal for You

We believe in an adoption approach that considers important details for finding the right fit, such as a person's home, interests and lifestyle. We then match those with an animal's social, exercise and training needs.

Unlike “pass/fail” application programs, we strive to match people and animals through education and discovery. We accomplish this through conversation to create an effective, pleasant adoption experience — and most important — to make lasting matches.
 
Each situation, adopter and animal requires a different approach. And while we reserve the right to refuse an adoption, we always make every effort to work with you to address concerns or find the most appropriate companion animal.

Before falling in love with one of our animals, please make sure that you are:

  • At least 21 years of age 
  • In possession of a valid photo ID 
  • Allowed to have a cat or dog where you live (proof of home ownership or copy of lease with pet clause allowing pets is required)
  • Able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide the training, medical treatment and proper care for the animal
  • Able to provide veterinary references for current and past veterinarians

PLEASE ALLOW 4-5 BUSINESS DAYS FOR YOUR APPLICATION TO BE THOROUGHLY PROCESSED BY ONE OF OUR ADOPTION COUNSELORS
If the animals are still listed on our website they are still available. If an animal has an adoption pending it will be listed as Pending. Once adopted, the animal will no longer be active but will appear under "Successes".

THE APPLICATION PROCESS WILL PROCEED MORE QUICKLY IF YOU GIVE US A VALID EMAIL ADDRESS.

Our Adoption fees are:
  • $100 for a cat.
  • $250 for a dog.
  • $300 for a puppy.
  • $  65 for a rabbit
  • $  25 for a guinea pig

*Please note that all our animals are spayed or neutered, if old enough, and now microchipping is included for cats & dogs. If an animal is adopted out and is not old enough for us to spay or neuter, we do charge a $50 refundable spaying/neutering deposit, which is in addition to the adoption fee. This deposit will be returned once you provide proof of spaying or neutering which is required under the adoption agreement. Providing a copy of your veterinarian's invoice detail showing the surgery is usually sufficient, or a note from your veterinarian.

We also give a discount for multiple same-day adoptions, i.e. adopting two cats instead of one, or a mother and her kitten.

 

We also have printed applications available at our outreach events and our adoption center which may be completed onsite or faxed: 610-862-3938

Applying for adoption does not necessarily guarantee that you will be approved.

Once approved and once you've adopted an animal from us, we reserve the right to do a post-adoption home visitation to check on the well-being of the animal.
