  Adoption Policy

If you are interested in a particular animal that you have seen on Petfinder, please be sure to read the animal's entire profile and follow the instructions there for contacting the adoption counselor with questions, visiting the animal or submitting an adoption application for review. The adoption counselor will be in touch with you to confirm receipt of your application.  Please allow 24-48 hours for the process to start, and allow 2-4 days for the application to be reviewed. 

The adoption fee for all of our guests, regardless of breed or age, is $60, which includes microchip registration.  Our guests are spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.  We test for common diseases as well.

Adoption Guidelines:  To insure that we place our guests in loving and safe environments, we have established the following criteria:

  • Fenced Yards - As a general rule, we prefer any dog that will be larger than 10 pounds as an adult be placed in a home that has a fenced in yard. There are exceptions to this rule, depending on the situation and the particular dog. Exceptions are always at the discretion of a L.I.F.E. House Adoption Counselor.
  • References - We do require 3 personal references, as well as a vet reference. Personal references must be over 18.  Please call the vet reference and let them know that it is OK to discuss information about current or past pets with LIFE House for Animals.
  • No Same Day Adoptions - Please allow 2-4 days for review of the application, as we are completely staffed by volunteers. This allows our Adoption Counselors time to review the application and call references.
