|Frequently Asked Questions|
1. I want to get my animal spayed/neutered. Do you do that there? [Spay/Neuter coupons]
2. I want to adopt a cat/dog. What do I need to do? [Adoption Process]
It generally takes about 20-30 minutes to fill out an adoption application and go through a consultation. The application is a 1-2 day process and you will be notified of your application status promptly.
*Adoption applications for individuals who lease cannot be approved until we receive confirmation from their landlord or rental agency that they accept pets, and that all applicable deposits have been paid. Home ownership may be confirmed by contacting the tax assessor's office.
3. How much does it cost to adopt an animal? [Adoption Fees]
4. I'm looking for a specific type or breed of animal. Do you have any? [Wish List]
5. I saw a sign that says that an animal is "not available" for adoption yet. What does this mean?
6. I'd like to visit with an animal. Can I do that? [Adoption Policies]
7. So this animal is not available now - can you hold it for me? [Hold Policy]
8. Has anyone else submitted an application for this dog/cat? How do you decide who gets to bring it home?
Please note that in some cases we receive an animal with special needs. When necessary for the health and well-being of that animal we will evaluate all adoption applications and select the one that we feel best fits the needs of that animal.
9. If it doesn't work out, can I bring an animal back? [Return Policy]
Our goal is to place animals in forever homes. To that end our adoption counselors make every effort to pair you with a pet that fits your lifestyle. It can be difficult for an animal to make the transition to a new home, only to be brought back to the shelter, so we encourage you to consider your choice of pet carefully before making a final decision.
We will accept animals back within 2-weeks after adoption; however, your adoption fee is considered a donation and will not be refunded. After a 2-week period animals may be put on our waiting list to be surrendered back to us. We do ask that adopters always contact us if, for some reason, they can no longer keep a pet that was adopted from our shelter. However, we cannot always guarantee to take that animal back into our adoption program at the time you are looking to re-home it.
10. Can I take an animal home before it has been spayed/neutered?
11. I want to get my animal micro-chipped - do you do that?
12. I need to find another home for my cat/dog - will you take them? [Surrender Policy]
We can also put a picture and description of your pet on our 'private adoptions' webpage to help you re-home them directly. Other ways you might try to re-home your pet is by contacting the Friends for Life Matchmaker Program at 442-5999, and by posting signs at local vet hospitals, pet stores, in the newspaper, and at your place of work.
We are a small shelter and cannot take in every animal that is in need of a home. As a last resort you can contact the Humboldt County Animal Shelter at 840-9132. They are not a no-kill facility, but have an excellent track record of placing adoptable pets.
13. I found kittens/puppies - will you take them? [Surrender Policy]
14. I need to get my cat/dog vaccinated - do you do that there?
15. I lost my pet - do you have it there?
16. I want to have my pet euthanized - do you perform this service?
17. Where are you located?
18. When are you open? [Hours of Operation]
