Save-A-Pet Adoption Process

We invite you to view our animals online or visit us to see the animals we have available for adoption. Our adoption counselors will be more than happy to review with you the animal’s information to make sure that we have a potential match for you and your family. Once we have narrowed down the potential animals for your household, we will have you fill out an adoption application.

Filling out the application and meeting with an Adoption Staff Member is the second stage of the adoption process. The application can be completed and reviewed with our staff during your visit, or to save time, you can print and complete an application and bring it with you to Save-A-Pet. The review of the application helps to ensure your intended pet is a good match for your home and to give us the opportunity to answer any more questions that you may have. Once we have reviewed your application, we will arrange for you to meet and interact with the prospective animal.


Prospective Pet Interactions

Pet interactions are done in designated visiting areas and typically last from 15 to 30 minutes. You may have to wait for an interaction room or staff person to be available, and we appreciate your patience while other adopters complete their interactions.

Adoption applications must be submitted 30 minutes prior to closing to ensure that we have can accommodate your adoption. Please plan to arrive at least one hour before closing if you plan to visit with the animals.
