Thank you for your interest in adopting a pet from One Love Animal Rescue. We are extremely grateful to those who choose to adopt animals in need. We only consider adopters within an approximate 1 hour drive of Blackwood, NJ. One Love Animal Rescue is a volunteer organization and it may take a few days for us to reach out to you. Incomplete applications will not be considered. It may take up to a week to process your application, as we will check with your veterinarian and references before we get back to you. Please let them that we will be calling. Please note, that applicants will be interviewed and have a home visit before being approved to adopt one of our animals. If you have questions or concerns please reach out to OLARadoptions@gmail.com

Which animal are you considering for adoption? If you are unsure or wish to have us help match you, please select TBD.
Choose an animal:
Are you an ADULT member of your household? To adopt/foster a pet, you must be over 18. *

Are you ready to adopt a pet now? Please understand that any animal you may be applying for now, could be adopted if you are not ready. *

Are you financially able to manage food (especially if restricted to a special diet), litter, annual veterinary visits/care, monthly preventatives, and unexpected veterinary expenses (if your cat were to become ill or injured)? Also note, the adoption donation is $200 for a cat/kitten.*
Are you willing to work through a minimum two-week adjustment and decompression period for your newly adopted pet to allow time to get used to his/her new environment? Introducing a pet to a new home is a slow process that can require patience. Are you able to provide this level of commitment?*
