Adoption application

1) Submit Adoption Application
• Complete your adoption application, including your veterinarian information, landlord (if applicable), etc. An e-mail address is required, if you do not have a personal e-mail, provide one where the individual would be in contact with you regularly. If you do not currently have a vet, please indicate the vet you intend to use for your new pet. We know our application may seem lengthy, but our questions are necessary to evaluate you as a candidate for the Friends for Life animal you have selected. Some questions are required or the form will not submit correctly, please answer all questions.

2) Initial Telephone Call
• Within 1 - 6 days after online submittal of your application a FFL representative will call you by telephone to set up a meeting at the shelter so you can meet the dog or cat you are interested in.

3) Reference Check
• A FFL representative may call all references, especially your vet and landlord (if applicable), if we wish to proceed with your application after the initial review.

4) The Home Visit
• We generally don't do home visits, but do reserve the right if we feel there is a need. 

5) Adoption Approval
• Once you have met the animal you are interested in, if all goes well, you will sign the adoption contract and pay the adoption fee. You will have two weeks to let the pet settle in. If for some reason things don't work you are allow to return the pet to us with prior approval. 

6) Multiple Applications for the Same Pet

• If we have multiple applications submitted for the same pet, our adoption committee will make a decision based on the best home for the particular pet. We DO NOT process applications or adopt our pets out on a 'first-come, first-served' basis.

• If you are not chosen for a particular pet, please do not be offended or insulted. Our first priority is to find the absolute best home for our pets, each of whom has unique characteristics and attributes. FFL will assist you in selecting another pet or will suggest other pets that will be best suited for your particular circumstances, if we have such a pet.
