The Adoption Process
If you are interested in any of our adoptable animals, please call or email the shelter at 724-925-2555 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time for a meet and greet with the animal of which you are interested. You will also need to fill out an adoption application.
Our shelter staff and adoption counselors will review your information to see if you are a good match for the pet you have selected. Please allow yourself about an hour to have the proper time to spend with an adoption counselor to discuss the responsibility of owning your specific pet and making a lifetime commitment. Please remember our number one goal and priority is finding FOREVER homes for the dogs and cats in our care and matching the right pet with the right home environment. Submitting an application does not guarantee adoption. Some pets receive multiple applications and we do our best to sort through to find the absolute best match possible.
When you fall in love with someone, and we know you will, here is the link to our adoption application.
Good luck in your search for your newest best friend and family member, and as always thank you for opting to adopt! Rescue is always the BEST breed!
