Be a Friend . . . Adopt a SAVE Pet
THE SHELTER IS OPEN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY FOR APPROVED ADOPTERS to allow the dedicated time for our staff to facilitate the optimal pet-matchmaking experience.
As a result of the pandemic forcing us to operate the shelter by appointment only, we learned that it works! We have received positive feedback from our adopters. We can ensure an even better outcome for both the pet and the adopter by closing the shelter to walk-in visitors and operating by appointment only.
COMPLETE ADOPTION FORM
Complete our online adoption application. An application must be completed and approved prior to visiting with our animals.
MEET YOUR PET
A SAVE staff member will contact you to make an appointment. ALL members living in the household must meet the pet as part of the adoption process. If you are interested in adopting a dog and you have other dogs in the household, a meet and greet will be required.
Pets are family and a lifetime commitment.
SAVE adoption policies are based on industry best practices. Our staff are happy to assist you in finding the perfect match for you, your family, and your lifestyle. When you take your furry friend home, be prepared for a period of adjustment. It can take an adopted pet 3 days, 3 weeks, or even 3 months (or more) to adjust to their new home environment.
After you have found a cat or dog you would like to adopt, the next step is filling out and submitting the application.
*If you have any questions about the process, please call the shelter at 609-309-5214.
