ADOPTION APPLICATION AND PROCESS
Steps to adoption:
Step 1: Talk to your landlord, Insurance company, Roommates, Significant other, and all other household members to confirm that everyone is ready for adoption
Step 2: Determine whether you are wanting a dog or a cat. Exercise requirement are significantly different as are personalities, but everyone should agree with the decision.
Step 3: Find and purchase all necessary supplies, crates, kennels, beds, food bowls, litterboxes, toys scratching posts.
Step 4: Check out our available animals online and discuss which ones would be the best fit.
Step 5: The primary owner should fill out an application by selecting the animal you are interested in and clicking "Interested in the animal? Click Here" (see photo below). This will take you to an external site to fill out the adoption application. Once you have completed that contact us at 402-228-9100 to schedule an appointment to meet the pet.
Step 6: Come meet the animal of your dreams, for dog meetings please bring all children and other dogs in the house. For cats, please bring all children in the house.
Step 7: If all goes well, we will spend about 30 minutes counseling you on your new pet, how to get them settled and setting you and your new friend up for life long success
Step 8: Go Home! Almost all adoptions can be completed same day if you have followed the steps above!
