Many factors determine which applicant will be matched with a particular pet. If you are not approved to adopt a particular, it does not mean that you are not considered a good pet owner or that your home is not acceptable. Our goal is to place all animals into homes that will best suit their individual needs. Please ask for clarification if you have any questions.
Please not call-if after you have received the email confirmation. We have received your application. We are all volunteers and there is no physical office or shelter. We communicate primarily through email.
