pawprintAdoption Policies
If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting one of our lovely animals, please email us. If you are serious about adopting, you will need to fill out an application. Once your application is completed, it is emailed to our group of fosters who will check with your vet to make sure your current pets are up to date medically.  We will call your pet reference.  We will make sure that your family is a match for the animal you are applying for.  After you have sent in your application, you will typically here back from us within a few hours.  It helps to email the foster at the time you fill out the application just to let them know you have submitted it so they can look for it.  If you do not hear back from someone within 24 hours, please email info@pawsandprayers.org to let us know and we will contact the foster to offer assistance in processing your application.  Remember, we are all volunteers with jobs and families, we respectfully try to handle your application as quickly as possible, we know how excited you are, so are we to find a new home for one of our dogs or cats, but, kids get sick, and jobs get busy, so, give us 24 hours!

Our adoption fees range from $50 for senior dogs to $300 for puppies.  All of our dogs come with their vaccinations current to time of adoption, on heartworm and flea preventative, tested for heartworm, rabies (if age appropriate), spayed/neutered (if age appropriate), wormed and any other medical needed before adoption.  We adopt cats for between $25 - $100 depending on age and health factors.  All of our cats come with their vaccinations current to time of adoption, on flea preventative, tested for feline leukemia/aids, rabies (if age appropriate), spayed/neutered (if age appropriate), wormed and any other medical needed before adoption.  Adoption fees go towards the cost of rescuing and medical expenses, which includes spaying or neutering and any other medical issues an animal may have. We also do a 2 week trial for all adoptions, if you return the dog or cat within 2 weeks we will refund all but a $25 administrative fee. This is not meant to be a way to "sample" pets, it is meant to be a safety net for the dogs and cats, so they are not kept in homes because of the financial investment made. 

We accept cash or checks.  If you prefer to pay with a credit card, arrangements can be made to pay via PayPal (although this would need to be done before you took your new pet home) or many times we can take a credit card at events.  You can purchase us a gift card for PetsMart, Pet Supplies Plus, or a VISA card, we would really prefer cash or check, but understand that is not always possible. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.  Our main goal is that everyone is happy with their adoption of a happy, healthy animal.  We would never intentionally adopt out an animal with medical issues, but, we are not perfect and it can happen that an animal who appeared to be perfectly healthy at the time of adoption can come down with an illness.  If this occurs, please notify the foster parent as soon as possible and also please email us at medical@pawsandprayers.org.  Someone will respond to you as quickly as possible.

We do have trainers that we work with and most of us have multiple animals in our household.  If you are having issues or concerns with your new dog or cat settling in, please contact your foster, or email us at info@pawsandprayers.org.  The sooner you let us know their is an issue, the quicker we can work with you to resolve it.

Thank you for considering adopting from Paws and Prayers.
