How to Adopt

If you are thinking about adding a 4 legged member to your family, start by deciding whether you want a young animal or an adult. There are pro and cons to both.

You can email us for an adoption application and one will be sent to you. After you have been approved, you can call the rescue to see what we have available at that time. We may take in new residents during the week or we may have the same ones for a few weeks. Then you can visit our rescue to see if any of our residents match your needs and wants. This needs to be done by appointment as some of our dogs are in foster homes. If you are interested in a cat or kitten, we have them for adoption at Petsmart in Jackson. You may simply tell one of us what type of pet you are looking for and we can call you if one comes available.

Please understand that this is truly an adoption. You may feel we are asking personal questions and in some cases we are. It takes time, money and effort to properly care for and train a pet to be an accepted member of your family. We do the best we can to try to match pet with family to help ensure this relationship is a success. There are no guarantees and sometimes it does not work out due to unforseen circumstances. Each and every pet here holds a special place in our hearts and we want to make every effort to ensure the love and care we began will be continued in the new family.

At the time of actual adoption, you will be asked to fill out and sign an “adoption agreement” that tells what we expect from our adoptive parents. There is a Adoption fee that is required --- $200.00 (This is a minimum fee. Feel free to donate more. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit public charity and your donation is tax deductible.) The adoption agreement is a legally binding document. We do this because we feel that adopting a pet from a rescue involves your making a commitment to this pet for the duration of it’s life. *NOTE: Transport charges may apply for out of town delivery!

We know that some pets we take in will never be adopted, due to age, breed or temperament. They will be welcome to live out their lives with us. We are a “no kill” rescue. There may be extreme circumstances such as being critically ill or injured beyond healing capabilities that the animal will have to be humanely euthanized but we do this out of rare necessity and not as a means of population control.

We thank you for your interest in adopting a rescue pet.
