I want to adopt an animal from your organization but I am going away for ______, will he/she be available when I return?
We cannot make any guarantee’s that an animal will still be in our care. To ensure all of our rescues are being adopted as soon as possible and to the right families, we do not keep them reserved or on hold for more than 3-5 days (with exceptions). It is always best to adopt a pet after a vacation and never before, this way you are fully prepared and ready for your new addition.
If you have already completed the necessary steps to adopt the animal (read about our adoption process here), but are not ready to have the animal transferred to your home, you can place a $20.00 non-refundable deposit on the animal or pay the full adoption fee to ensure the animal is held for you.
This $20 deposit is non-refundable as an animal pending adoption will most likely be passed over by other potential adopters. If you then opt out of adopting the animal, they will have lost out on two potential families.
I want to adopt but I don't drive or have a car!
Not to worry! If you’re able to arrange transportation to visit the animal, we can arrange to move the animal into your care following the adoption.
Can we bring our pet to the vet clinic of our choice when getting them neutered/spayed?
The cost of the spay or neuter of your new pet is covered by the adoption fee so long as they are brought to our affiliate veterinary clinic, the Glebe Pet Hospital. If you choose to use to bring your new companion to another clinic for their spay/neuter it will be at your expense. You will also be required to provide proof that your pet has been spayed/neutered.

Your adoption process seems quite thorough!
We’re glad you mentioned that! We work hard to place our rescues in the right homes, not only for the pet but for the family too. It’s an extremely rigorous process and we are happy with the families who understand this. We have been very successful at finding the perfect homes for our animals as a result of this rigorous project. All steps of the process are absolutely mandatory.
