If you are looking to bring home your furry family member the same day of an adoption event, please come prepared with a form of ID, the contact information for your veterinarian and a copy of your lease agreement/pet policy. Please note that the pet you are interested in may no longer be available by the time you arrive at the event, or may already be pre-approved for another family. We highly encourage you to fill out the adoption application in advance of an event for pre-approval, and to list 1-2 other pets that you’d be interested in on your application should your first choice no longer be available.
