Thank you for your interest in our animals. Animals Best Friends strives to make a compatible match with our families and our companion animals. Due to the volume of e-mails and calls we only contact applications that meet our criteria. If you are selected, we contact in five business days.

If not contacted, please pursue another rescue group or shelter.

Thank you,
ABF Volunteers

         

Process of Adoption

1. Decide on the animal(s) you are interested in.
 
2. Click on the “Adoption Application” located at the top of your

screen.
 
3. Completely fill out the application.
 
4. Submit the application by clicking on the "Submit" button.

5. Once we receive your application, it is then reviewed and

the vet reference is checked. (This can take a couple of days.)
 
6. If your application is chosen, we will contact you within 5 days for a phone interview.

 
7. At the end of the phone interview, if both parties feel we have made a match, we will schedule a home visit. We bring the animal you are interested in to your home. At that time, we interact the animal with your other animals, children, and adults.

We ask that everyone in the household be present for the

home visit.

NOTE: There will be no obligation by either party. At this

time we will not be leaving the animal with you.
 
8. The family will then decide if they would like to start a two week trial with the animal. ABF decides if this is the right home for the animal. If everyone agrees, then we start a trial period with the animal.
 
9. During the trial period, ABF will furnish the crate needed for the animal, leash, and collar. The adoptive family and ABF are

in contact during the whole trial period.
 
10. If the trial period is a success, ABF will finalize the adoption. If either party determines that the conditions do not warrant placement of the dog/cat, then ABF will take the animal back. In either case, all materials supplied by ABF during the trial period are to be returned.

If at any time you are unable to keep your ABF adopted pet, we ask that the animal be returned to ABF.
