Thank you for choosing to adopt a pet! The decision to adopt a pet is an important one which we take very seriously. Please take a moment to read and carefully complete our adoption application. In order to adopt a pet, you must:
- be at least 21 years old
- fill out a dog application or a cat application
- be able to provide references and identification
- consent to a home visit
- pay the adoption fees
All of our pets come spayed or neutered and are up-to-date on vaccinations. All are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. Our adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals.
An application does not obligate you to adopt. Please understand that our organization is run by unpaid volunteers, who dedicate their free time to help our animals. If your references are unavailable, it will delay the process, since those must be checked before moving forward. We thank you for your time and patience throughout our adoption process.
We accept cash, check, or credit payments for adoption fees. There will be an additional fee for credit payments of $15.00.
Yappy Tails Animal Rescue reserves the right to deny any application. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
