First, let us say that we are happy that you are interested in rescuing an animal. Please understand that our primary focus is to rescue animals in distress and assure that they are never put in that position again; therefore we do not have a first come, first serve mentality. Instead, we make every effort to ensure that we match the right family with the right pet. We will attempt to be totally honest with you about your pet of interest and, in return, ask that you be totally honest with us about your situation.
Before you contact us about any animal, please complete the Cat Adoption Application or a Dog Adoption Application so that we can have some preliminary information. There is space at the end for any questions. After we receive your form, we will contact you to answer your questions, discuss your compatability and hopefully set up a meeting with your future pet!
Not all of our pets attend all the events, so if you are interested in a particular pet, we recommend that you complete the online adoption form so that we can arrange a meeting.
Generally, minimum adoption donations range from $150-$350 for dogs and $40 - $150 for cats; this includes the cost of spaying/neutering, shots, microchipping, and medical care.
If you are renting, please be aware of our policy that pet fees and / or security deposits need to be paid before you will be able to finalize the adoption. We will also need to provide proof that the pet fee / security deposit has been paid. We have had many pets returned because the renter did not pay their pet fee.
We only accept cash, money orders, VISA and Mastercard.
Our adoption hours are by appointment Tuesday through Sunday at our Sanford Adoption Center. Check out our Events Calendar to verify additional times and locations.
We limit our adoptions to the Central Florida area. This is due in part to our return policy. If at any time in the pet's life you are unable to keep it, you are required to return it to us. Of course, it is our desire that each adoption be successful the first time, so please be completely honest with us and we will be honest with you. And, as always, thank you for considering adopting a rescued pet!
