Adoption Procedure

 

WE DO NOT ADOPT "ON THE SPOT."

 

As residents of a no-kill shelter, our animals are safe in our care until they find that perfect, permanent forever home. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with our procedure to assure their new home is a perfect fit – for you and for them!

  1. Complete the adoption application and submit it
    • by email,
    • to an adoption counselor at the adoption event,
    • to the shelter or
    • to fax number 214-363-6529 for dogs or 214-220-8548 for cats.
    An incomplete application form will delay your application.
  2. Our Adoption Director receives all applications within 24 hours of when you submit them for consideration.
  3. Our Adoption Team reviews all applications and performs the required reference checks.
    Again, incomplete or inaccurate data will delay and/or void your application.
  4. Within 48 – 72 hours you will hear from a member of the adoption team to clarify any issues, to approve or to deny your application.
    NOTE: approvals on dog adoptions are pending until a home visit can be completed. The timing on this varies with your location and volunteer availability to schedule the home visit.

The animals in our care are adopted at our discretion. We reserve the right to refuse adoption to any applicant.

 

10 Commandments of Ownership

 

Adoption Philosophy

 

Our concern for our animals is that they go to a permanent home where they will be well cared for their ENTIRE life. To accomplish this goal, we try to match each dog and cat to a suitable owner. If we feel you are incompatible with a certain animal you are interested in adopting, we retain the option to deny the application. Dog & Kitty City can refuse to re-home an animal without giving reason and cannot accept responsibility for temperament or behavior of any animal after re-homing, although we will support you with any problems that may arise. The animals are the property of Dog & Kitty City and are re-homed at our discretion. If you cannot keep your new pet for any reason, we expect you to return the animal to Dog & Kitty City.

 

Adoption Fees

 

Dogs: Varies depending on breed, size and age

Cats: $100

 

Adoption fees include all current shots, including rabies, spay/neuter and microchip.
 
Pet Tips

A word about animal behavior issues.

 

Basic Care 

  • Select a pet wisely, based on your lifestyle, schedule and budget. Keep in mind the animal's expected physical and behavioral characteristics and grooming needs.
  • Remember, you are the caretaker of you pet. When you adopt an animal, you adopt the responsibility of taking care of that animal for its entire life. Your pet loves you and depends on you.
