    1. We want to be sure that all adopters are aware of the level of responsibility they are taking on with their new pet.

We just want to get to know you and be sure that our rescue pet will fit well into their new home.  We also want to be sure to give you the best experience possible adopting our pets.

*If you are uncomfortable providing any of the information required on the application we thank you for your time and desire to rescue a pet but we will not adopt to someone that is not willing to let us get to know them for our pet’s safety.
