We initially ask that potential adopters fill out a pre-adoption form. This tells us a little about you and what you are looking for. It also tells us what your expectations are and what type of environment you have for the dog or cat. This is to determine if we think there is going to be a good fit. We are pretty good at this, having counseled pet adoptions for more than 20 years. After we read the adoption form, we will email you and let you know next steps. If we think there is a good match, we will arrange to have you visit with the dog or cat, usually at our facility. We do not deliver dogs or cats to homes for trial periods.
