ADOPTION = DEVOTION

ADOPTION FAQS

HOW DOES THE ADOPTION PROCESS WORK?
The best way to learn about the animals available for adoption is come visit us! Our adoption process is fun and easy and pets can often go home with you the same day.  Check the adoption pages of our website to see current photos and information about our adoptable pets. Our Client Care experts are here to help you through the process of finding the perfect match for you.  If you have other animals in your home, we will give you tips to help with the introduction process prior to the adoption being finalized.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN MY ADOPTION?
All of our adoptable animals have a comprehensive veterinary exam and all dogs, cats, rabbits, and ferrets will be spayed or neutered and microchipped and applicable vaccinations will be up-to-date.   Our staff and volunteers will provide you with information for on-going care and training for your new family member.

WHAT IF THE ANIMAL I ADOPT ISN’T A GOOD FIT?
If you feel that the animal you adopted isn’t a good fit, please contact us at 614-777-7387 and we will welcome the animal back.  Adoption fees for animals returned within 14 days are refunded minus a $20 processing fee.
