PROCESS

& POLICIES

ADOPTION PROCESS

Pets are like humans – each with unique needs & personalities. Our adoption process is designed to find the perfect fit for you, your home and your lifestyle.

  • STEP TWO: After your application has been reviewed, you must schedule a facility visit to meet our animals & staff. If necessary, applicants may then be asked to undergo a home visit by a FCAHS staff member.*

  • STEP THREE: Once you find your perfect pet & your application has been approved, you're ready to adopt! At the time of adoption, you will be required to pay the $75 adoption fee, and provide a leash & collar for your animal prior to departure.

*Home inspections are required for all Pit Bull breed adoptions. All applicants are subject to a background check. FCAHS reserves the right to deny any adoption application for any reason.
