We put most of our adoptable dogs and cats on petfinders but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a dog or cat that might be a better fit for your needs. Once we know what you are looking for, we can then give you a few options of other animals that also might fit your needs. We find many times that people don’t read the descriptions carefully and we spend time explaining how a super shy dog would not be a good fit for a home with five kids under age 5. For that reason, we ask that people interested in adopting to fill out a pre adoption form. That way, we can have a productive discussion about what type of animal you are looking for and who would be a good match for your situation.
Our goal is to find a good fit for you and for the animal. If we don’t feel your home is a good fit or an animal personality, size or needs isn’t a good fit for you, we won’t do the adoption. While we have a lifetime return policy, it is hard on pets to change homes and we try to minimize disruption in that dog or cat’s life. Also, the dog or cat’s safety is our top concern. We carefully evaluate a potential adopter’s commitment to that animal’s safety, including having a secure outside routine.
