PRE-ADOPTION

If an animal that you are interested in adopting is not available yet, you may choose to pre-adopt. After paperwork is completed you must leave a payment for all adoption fees in full. Payments are accepted in the form of cash and check only. We will make a copy of your ID. The animal will be available to you if it is not re-claimed by the owner during the allotted time.
