ADOPTION

Our adoption process is designed to make sure our animals go to the best homes possible.

​What goes into our application process:

  • PROPERTY CHECK – We verify ownership of property, or we check with landlords to go over any restrictions that may be on the lease
     

  • VET REFERENCE – All cats and dogs in the applicant's home must be current on vaccinations
     

  • PERSONAL REFERENCES – This gives us a feel for what kind of pet owner the applicant is
     

  • BACKGROUND CHECK – Almost Home has the right to deny adoption services based on the findings of a background check

The application process can take up to 5-7 days, depending on how quickly we can verify information and contact personal references.

 

Once your application has been approved, a staff member will contact you to schedule an adoption time.

 

After your application is approved, it is kept on file for 6 months. That way, if you don't find the right fit immediately, your information is readily available for when the perfect companion comes along.
