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!
