Adoption Process

Matching pets with the perfect family is VERY important to us.  The first step in finding your new best friend is to fill out an adoption application.  Our adoption counselors will review your application and get in contact with you.

LHAR adoption counselors use information and insights from foster homes to help individuals and families meet their perfect match. While in foster care awaiting their forever homes, animals are socialized, assessed and learn basic obedience. A foster home is the perfect opportunity to see an animal’s true personality to ensure they find their perfect forever home.

Prior to adoption, cats are tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus), given Rabies and Distemper vaccines, dewormed and are spayed/neutered. Dogs receive a heartworm check, spayed/neutered, Rabies and Distemper vaccines, dewormed, and kennel cough preventative. Our modest adoption fees help cover these costs; we hold fundraisers to make up the difference. Any ongoing medical needs that LHAR is aware of are explained fully to the potential adopter, and become the responsibility of the adopter.
