Adoption Process

  • Apply to adopt by filling out our adoption application. We carefully screen all applicants in an effort to match the perfect pet with the perfect family (lifestyle, other pets or kids in the home).
  • Interview and home visit. After your application has been reviewed, you will be contacted by a C.A.R.E.S. representative to arrange an interview and home visit.

Adoption Fees

We request a donation of up to $200 (average is $100) depending on the age and condition of the pet. Additional donations are gratefully accepted and tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Out-of-Area Adoptions

We strive to bring together pets and families in the same geographical area. However, if you are an approved adopter and willing to pay for transportation to adopt from another area, we will work with you to the best of our ability.
