Adoptions

Things to consider before you adopt:

Proper pet care is a commitment that is for the life of that animal.  A pet will require time,
patience, love and financial support for the rest of his life.

If you have other pets, they must be up to date on their rabies vaccinations.

If you have a pet or pets that you have adopted from us, they must be up to date on all
vaccinations.

If you live with other people, discuss your desire to adopt a pet with them before taking an
animal home. This will help ensure a good match.

If you rent, be sure your lease allows pets of the size and breed you are considering. Check for
additional rent and deposits that may be needed.

If you have other pets at home, be prepared to take extra time and patience when introducing
the new companion. We recommend that you keep the new animal isolated from the others
until you have had your new pet examined by your vet. Once the introduction is complete, make
sure to give all pets lots of exercise, attention and love.
