Thank you for your interest in adopting an unwanted/abandoned animal. Our intention is to make the best match between you and your new family member as possible.


Please complete this application in order for us to find the right match for both you and your new pet.

The adoption fee is $125.00 per dog/puppy & $100.00 per cat/kitten, which helps cover the costs of spay/neuter, veterinary checks and vaccinations and medical treatment as necessary.  Our animals are rescues and may have been exposed to contagious diseases including Parvo, Distemper and Heartworm. Every animal has been quarantined for the recommended number of days, examined by a vet, treated for known diseases and appear to be healthy.  Despite our best efforts, we cannot guarantee their health.
