If interested in adopting, please call 616-527-9040 to set up an appointment. All adoptions are finalized and no refunds will be given. In order to adopt you need to fill out the adoption application, which can be found on our applications tab or they can be filled out day of appointment. 

Things you may need:

  • If you rent your home, then we need to see a copy of your lease or renters' agreement stating your pet policy.
  • If you plan to adopt a cat, please remember to bring a carrier. If you do not have a carrier, we do have them for $5.
  • If you have any dogs at home, they need to be licensed with your county. It is a state law and we do enforce it.
  • We accept only cash, check and money order. We DO NOT accept card payments.
