PLEASE READ:
If you did not already know, POP is a student-run rescue out of Auburn, AL. Therefore, we do have to put some time aside during the week to focus on class and our additional jobs. Our normal business hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm M-F. In addition, we have been getting feedback that some of our emails are going to junk mail and not being seen by applicants. If you chose email as your preferred method of communication please be checking your email over the next week. Please allow us up to a week to review and process your application. If you have not heard back from us within a week of submitting this application please email us at poprescueteam@gmail.com and we will get back to you right away. If you submit an application on Friday-Sunday be mindful that it may take longer than one week to process. For, we have to check Veterinarian references and most offices close early Saturday and are not open on Sunday. We appreciate your patience and your interest in adopting through us! We could not do what we do without supporters like you! Thank you!

****IMPORTANT RE: NOVEMBER 23rd - JANUARY 11th****
We are currently on Holiday Break intermixed with a period of finals (December 2nd until December 8th). Please allow us at least 5-7 business days to respond to your email. During the week of Christmas: December 20th until December 27th most vet offices have limited hours and it will be more difficult for us to conduct vet checks during this time.
