Thank you for looking at Sloppy Kisses to adopt your new furry family member!
Here is some information about our adoption process:
If you are interested in adopting a dog or cat please complete our online adoption application (link below). Once received we will check your references and be in touch with you. If you haven't heard back from us and it has been more then 72 hrs please feel free to email us at email@example.com. I also recommend following us on Facebook if you aren't already as that is usually where we post our adoptions first so you can see if the animal you are interested in has been adopted. If an animal has 10 or more applications we will remove it from our available pets list. If for some reason those applications don't work out it will be posted again. If you notice the status of your application changes to 'on hold' the animal you applied for has been adopted.
We do adoptions all of the time, not just at adoption events! Once we have checked your references we will put you in touch with the pets foster so you can set-up a meet and greet. All of our adoption paperwork can be completed online so if you decide at the meet and greet you would like to adopt we can email you the paperwork to complete on your phone (most of the time we will send this out just before the meeting). Once completed you can take the pet home with you!
NO ADOPTION EVENTS CURRENTLY! We also have adoption events. For information on when and where our next event will be please check out the Home page. To adopt a dog or cat at one of our events we really appreciate if you have an application completed PRIOR to the event. Because adoption events can get a bit crazy this allows us to check your references and make sure we have any required documents like permission from your landlord already out of the way. On weeks that we have an adoption event coming up may may not set up meet and greets for that animal if it will be attending the adoption event. Adoptions at adoption events are first come to approved applicants so this is also why it is best to have an application submitted PRIOR to the adoption event!
BEFORE YOU ADOPT
It is your responsibility to do appropriate research and you are ultimately responsible for the pet you choose to adopt. Please allow proper consideration for any constraints as mandated by housing, exercise needs, financial responsibilities, etc.
If you are not willing or able to contribute $500-$1200 in training for your new pet if needed, please do not adopt (please make sure to read item 2 of the adoption contract)!
We do not DNA test dogs prior to adoption, the breed listed is based of the records we have prior to the dogs coming to our rescue, and physical characteristics the dog has, but we make no guarantees regarding the breed and age of the pet (please refer to item 12 of the adoption contract).
READ THE ADOPTION CONTRACT DON'T JUST SIGN!!! There is also information/resources on our website for adopters to help you and your new pet get acclimated please look at that prior to adopting.
