The adoption process may take up to 48 hours and includes a review of your application. We strongly recommend that all household members be present during the meet and greet visit and final adoption to ensure the pet is a good fit with the entire home. Residency requirements will be verified. Be truthful in your responses so that the Adoption Counselor can help find the best pet for your household and/or family. Failure to provide truthful answers will result in nullification of your application and contract. The application questions are not optional – all questions must be answered.
The Adoption Counselor’s primary responsibility is placing the pet in a home that best meets the particular needs of the pet. Applicants are encouraged to review all available animals and ask questions of the Adoption Counselor to determine which pet would be best suited for your home. Please note that Hospice Hearts is an all-volunteer organization and we appreciate your respectful treatment.
