If you rent/lease your place of residence, you must obtain permission from your landlord prior to applying for adoption. We are required by the State of Illinois to verify that you have received permission so please include your landlords contact info on application. Failure to provide this information may result in the denial of your application.
In some cases, when adopting certain breeds (Pit Bulls, Rottweiler’s, etc) or special needs dogs (or cats), we would require a home visit before the dog/cat leaves our facility.We may also do an after-the-fact home visit to make sure that all needs are being met.Please be aware of this before filling out the application.
If you do not meet any of these requirements and/or have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org prior to completing an adoption application. We understand that every adoption is not black and white and will work with you if we are able to.
***Additional Comments Regarding Adoptions:Adoptions are conducted on a first come first serve basis meaning the first application submitted will be processed first.If that application is approved they will be granted the adoption.If that application is denied the next application in line will be taken into consideration.Submission of your application does not mean the application is approved.
Also, we strive to find the best fit not only for adopters but for our animals.We reserve the right to deny applications if we do not feel that the animal you have applied for would be a good match for your family.This does not mean that you would not be eligible for another animal that would be a better match for you.Keep looking!
