Adoption Information

 

THE ADOPTION PROCESS:
BY ADOPTION APPLICATION:

PLEASE FILL OUT THE APPLICATION BELOW AND COPY AND PASTE IT TO: projectpreciouspaws@hotmail.com

The application asks for some basic personal information, and some questions about how you plan to care for your new companion animal. Once you complete the application, it will normally take us just a few days to approve your application. You may fill out an application to be pre-approved and ready to adopt the “purr-fect” animal as soon it comes into the program, or you may apply with one of our animals already in mind. Decisions are generally not made on a first come first serve basis, but rather who is the best match for the animal and vice-versa, depending on the animal’s temperament, age, exercise needs, size, etc.

BY VISITING THE SHELTER OR MEETING US AT AN ADOPTION EVENT:

If you meet the pet you wold like to adopt at the shelter or at an event we can handle the adoption process in person.

In either case, if desired, we do offer trial “sleepovers,” lasting up to a week, to determine if you and the animal are going to be a great match for each other. This can be especially helpful when trying to introduce a new animal into a household that already has other pets. To finalize the adoption, we will call after a week and then process the paperwork on our end. Again, it is some basic personal information, and some statements that you will verify to make sure you plan to provide adequate care for you new companion.

Once the adoption contract is filled out, and/or the trial sleep-over period is over, the adoption becomes final and you become the legal owner of the animal.
