Thank you for considering the adoption of a shelter animal! Before you decide to adopt a pet, please consider the time, effort and funds (estimated at $1000 or more annually for food, supplies, vaccination, and veterinary care) necessary to properly maintain an animal. Responsible pet ownership requires a commitment to provide care and companionship for the life of the animal. The decision to adopt a pet is an important one. In order to insure that you and your pet will be happy for years to come, we need to take time to discuss your and the animal’s individual needs and personality traits. Please take a few moments to carefully read and complete this application.
