Our Adoption Process

All adopter’s must fill out an application which must be approved before taking one of our pets home. If you are considering adopting a dog or puppy and have a dog at home, we strongly encourage you to bring your dog for a dog introduction. This appointment can be scheduled after you have completed the adoption application process.

The Animal Welfare League (AWL) Partners with University Shelter Medicine Programs in Million Cat Challenge

AWL is joining animal shelters across North America to save the lives of one million more cats in the next five years. It’s all part of a joint campaign of the Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Program at the University of Florida and the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program. The Million Cat Challenge is a shelter-based campaign to save the lives of one million cats in North America over the next five years. The core strategy of the campaign will focus on five key initiatives that offer every shelter, in every community, practical choices to reduce euthanasia and increase live outcomes for shelter cats. Drs. Levy and Hurley are available for interviews. For more information, visit http://www.millioncatchallenge.org/.
