Before you waste your time or mine.  You will have to provide the following.  1. Drivers license picture for all adults living in the home.(department of agriculture requires this, if you don't like it take it up with them not me) 2. Proof of home ownership if you own your home(remember this is not anything I can do a thing with its PUBLIC RECORD) 3. If you rent we have to have a copy of the pet addendum or landlord emailed approval. (This is at our discretion which we prefer) 4. Your references will email me their opinion on your adoption. (I will not be calling them, they will not be calling me. I am extremely busy and an email is how we do this part, if they are too busy you need new references) these requirements are to make sure that the animals we Rescue do not end up back in the same situations they come from. If these requirements are TOO much to ask, there is no need to continue my application. And nasty emails in regards to it will have you blacklisted from ever adopting from us or any of our affiliated rescues. So instead of being ugly if this does not suit you, just find a rescue who is not as concerned about the well being of their pets. Thank you for understanding. Heather Gavitt

Policies and procedures

* We are a 100% volunteer run organization, so it takes time to process your application (2-5 weeks depending on volume.) Everyone in our organization is an UNPAID VOLUNTEER. Everyone works full time jobs and have families of their own - so please be patient!!! We do NOT do same day adoptions and we complete physical home inspections, vet checks, reference checks and criminal history checks on ALL applicants to be sure the home is the right fit for the animal. Fences are not required for all animals and we do allow some animals to live in apartments - we will choose the home that is best suited for the animal's needs - all fosters & adopted animals must be on leash 100% of the time if not in a fenced yard.

* On adoption day: 
For Cats: you only need a collar and current ID tag.   
For Dogs: you must provide your own collar, leash, ID tag with your information on it and harness if desired. We highly suggest you also have on hand canned pumpkin and plain Greek yogurt, if there will be any food change, to help control loose stools. We can provide sizing information for supplies. We also suggest the purchase of 6 months heartworm prevention medication at our cost, so they do not miss a dose. Flea/Tick prevention will be current upon delivery and then you will need to purchase their next dose of your preferred method.
Heartworm prevention cost:
Up to 100 pounds: $56
Up to 50 pounds: $46
Up to 25 pounds: $36
If the dog is over 100 pounds you may have to purchase multiple boxes to accommodate weight and give them one of each pill per month. For example if the dog weighs 135 pounds you will need a box of up to 100 pounds and a box of up to 50 pounds for a total of $56 + $46 = $102. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us via Facebook or via email at
