The Adoption Fee helps to cover transport costs, vet visits, vaccinations, deworming, health certificates and spay/neuter. The Fee includes age-appropriate vaccines, heartworm and flea/tick preventatives, microchip and spay/neuter. A spay/neuter certificate is provided for pets too young to be altered at the time of adoption.
Potential adopters must fill out an adoption application to be considered. All information about an adoptable pet can be found in their profile description, which is updated regularly. We can only respond to applicants that are considered a good match for a particular pet. Response time is approximately 1-5 days. Once you are contacted, we will move forward with the adoption process; this may include a phone interview, home visit and vet/personal references check. Approved adopters will receive a confirmation email which outlines the final steps in adopting the pet. If the pet is in NJ we can move forward quickly and adoptions can be finalized in less than a week. Adoptions are primarily done on the weekends.
Since most of our pets come from out-of-state, our local partners will secure a foster home until transport can be arranged for their trip to NJ. We will give you the transport details once you are approved to adopt. This option was added since Covid began to minimize social gatherings and contact as much as possible and most adopters are eager to pick up their new family member and bring them home.
We provide at-home adoptions. This option is available to NJ residents only. Adoptions are finalized in the comfort of your home. You must be pre-approved to adopt the pet you are interested in. You must be ready to adopt the pet at this time. This option allows our rescue to do a home visit (required for first-time adopters), meet and greets for adopters with other pets, and the adoption, all at the same time. At-home adoptions may require more than one visit to finalize but we usually have great success with this option, especially for families with kids and other pets.
Your contribution will enable us to help our local and Southern partners continue to save lives. We are very grateful for your generosity.
