All potential adopters complete & go through an application process. The first step is to complete & submit an adoption application. Once your application is received, it generally takes about 3 - 7 business days to get an approval status. This timeframe can vary based on how quickly we receive responses from your references. We encourage potential adopters to let their personal & veterinary references (if applicable) know we will be calling, as this helps aid in the process. Your patience with our volunteers/staff throughout this process is appreciated!
**Please note: we are only able to hold pets for approved applicants for approximately one week after application approval**
Adoption fees vary based on the pet. Each individual animal will have their adoption fee listed in their Petfinder biography at the bottom. Adoption fees include MN sales tax (we are required to collect sales tax). Adoption fees can be paid by check or cash. Sorry, we do not accept debit/credit cards.
