Do Your Own Research
With any animal ownership, the owner must be educated on their care. We understand that everyone was once a “first time owner” and we all have to start somewhere. But please be sure you are prepared and committed to caring to the life of another being. If you are unsure of an answer or what your plans are yet, and are just starting this process, let us know. We will automatically decline any application that is submitted incomplete.
