Our Adoption Process

Download Adoption Application

All adopters will need to fill out an adoption 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 a meet and greet. This appointment can be scheduled after you have completed the adoption application process. All puppies must have an approved application on file before they will be shown to potential adopters. 

Please note that there are no holds on adoptions, it is first-come, first-serve. You may submit your adoption application form via fax at (330) 539 – 1519 or by email to our Animal Care Manager at
