How to Adopt

Step 1

Is your whole family ready for a new addition? Check in before you apply. Also, if you rent, please ensure that your lease permits pets and check additional requirements such as pet rent or renter's insurance. Find a good vet and a reliable placement for your pet if you travel.

Step 2

Potential adopters are required to complete a digital application. Please be sure to have current vet records readily available. Complete the application with as much detail as you can.

Step 3

Once your application is submitted, it will be review within 72 business hours. If you have not heard back from us, you can always email to confirm that your application was received!

Step 4

Before you can bring your new companion home, we will help you arrange a meet and greet with the pet and their foster family. The foster family is a wealth of knowledge about the pet and can help guide you to the perfect match! This is when you will pay your adoption fee and sign the contract as well.

Step 5

Once you bring your new friend home, expect an adjustment period of a few days to a few weeks depending on the animal. Please remember that adopted animals will require training and patience while they adjust their new home. We are happy to offer tips and tricks, as well as help you find a wonderful trainer in your area.

Benefits of Adoption

Lots of Choices

The Foster Farm animal rescue has lovable dogs and cats, and small animals of all shapes, sizes and ages. Your chances of finding a wonderful companion who matches your lifestyle and family are excellent!

About 25% of dogs in rescue are purebred. The rest make up the best selection anywhere of unique, one-of-a-kind mixed breeds (from private owners or rural animal shelter). Mixed breed dogs are often healthier, longer-lived, more intelligent, and are more stable in temperament than purebred dogs.


Rescued = Awesome

Many pets end up at our rescue because of circumstances beyond their control. They’re victims of a death, illness, divorce, a new baby, or a move that didn’t include them. A second-hand pet in no way means second-rate. Most of our residents are healthy, affectionate animals. Many have already lived with a human family and have the basic training, socialization, and cooperative skills they need to become part of your household. The staff at TFF can give you great insight into a pet’s personality. We evaluate each dog’s behavior upon arrival and become familiar with their disposition. This valuable information helps us make optimal matches between homes and pets, and helps you make you the most appropriate adoption decision.

Less Money, More Love

Another advantage to adopting is that rescued animals are a real bargain! An adoption fee is much lower than the cost of buying a dog from a pet store or breeder. Our adoption packages include spaying or neutering for adult animals, so you won’t have to pay for the cost of surgery. Our pets are given a physical exam, vaccinations, and are dewormed. We also include micro-chipping  to help you locate a lost pet.
