Adoption Contract & Fee

 

Thank you for your interest in adopting a pet from Rescuzilla! All of our animals are vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Each comes from our small network of foster homes, which allows us to give adopters a great idea of their personality and needs. Did you see a pet on our Pets for Adoption page that caught your eye?  To get started, fill out an application.  

When we receive your application, we will contact you via email to set up a meet & greet.  This is a great chance for the whole family to meet your potential new pet, ask questions, and just get a feel for how everyone would fit together as a family!  After you meet, we encourage potential adopters to take some time to think about and discuss the decision together.  

If all parties decide to move forward, we will process your application and schedule a time to bring your new pet home to you once your application has been approved.  This also allows time for you to prepare your home with everything you’ll need to welcome your pet home to stay.  

If, on the other hand, you decide it’s not a love connection, we are happy to continue to help you find the right match and will do our best to suggest another pet for your family!  

Adoptions are finalized during the homecoming with a contract and adoption fee, which helps us to continue our mission to rescue animals.

 

Thank you for choosing to adopt and save a life!
