Prior to adopting one of our wonderful rescues, you will be required to complete an adoption application.  

Note: The online applications are set up for PC's only.  If you are using an Apple/Mac product,

it will be necessary to print out a copy, complete and then you can submit it by scanning and emailing to or fax to 866-809-7277.

If you are interested in adopting from one of our adoption centers, applications are available and can be completed there.   Once your application has been reviewed and approved, it is possible that it can be finalized while you are still there.  If you plan to adopt a cat or kitten, please bring a pet carrier with you.  We do not allow the animals to leave unless they are in a carrier.

If you are interested in a pet that is in one of our foster homes, we require a pre-approved application. Once your application is reviewed and if approved, we will make an  appointment for you to meet the pet and interact with it.  The review and approval process is generally completed within 24 hours. If all goes well during the interaction, the adoption can generally be finalized at that time.

If you are a member of the military, in addition to the cat or dog application, we request that you also complete the Military Questionnaire.

If you need additional information regarding our process, you may call our message line at 619-866-6035 and  your call will be returned within 48 hours.  You may also contact us via email by going to the contact link on the home page or email us outside of the contact link at  Emailing us might be faster than using the message line.  

​To complete our applications, please follow the instructions below:

  • Choose the correct application below, click on it and save to your hard drive using a file name that you will remember. 

  • Once saved to your hard drive, you may exit this site, then open the file on your computer.

  • Complete all areas on the document and save again to your hard drive.  We suggest that you add a number or letter to the end of the file name for this save.  

  • If you are in the military and wish to adopt an animal, we require that you complete the Military Questionnaire as well as the adoption application.

  • Once done, address and email to, attaching your document.

  • Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued pet!
