Interested in adding a family member? How does the adoption process work? Good question! The first step is completing our adoption application which is generally reviewed within 24 hours of receiving. If at any point in the process you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. After submitting your application a representative will review and contact you to discuss the animal and answer questions. If your application is approved, a home visit is scheduled where the adoption is usually finalized. n nBefore proceeding with the adoption application you must be at least 21 years old.
