  • We ask for a personal reference (this can be a family member, friend, employer) who can attest to your ability to care for a pet.
  • Adopters who live in apartments will be required to show proof that pets are allowed. This can be provided in the form of a lease, phone number of a leasing office, landlord, super or property website.
  • If you currently have a pet, a vet reference will be required.
  • Some adoptions can be done same-day. Others may take more time to complete.

You may fill out the Adoption Application ahead of time, but adopters must apply for a specific animal – we do not accept general applications. Please DO NOT MAIL OR FAX it in.

We are currently processing applications remotely. Please contact us to begin the adoption process if you are interested in a specific animal. Our available animals can be viewed here.
