Potential adopters must visit the animals and fill out our online pre-adoption information sheet (you may also download and print our pre-adoption application). Then, if there is a pet that you would like as a member of your family, we recommend that you take 48 hours to give us a chance to go over your information, making sure that your chosen pet is a good match for you, and to give yourself a chance to seriously consider the adoption. We hope that adoptions will be permanent and families must remember that this often means a 12-14 year commitment to the care and loving of your chosen pet.

*Most animals are neutered when 4-6 months of age while they are at the shelter. All animals too small or young to be neutered go home with a voucher for their Spay/Neuter Surgery at a local vet. The extra fee at the time of adoption for Cats and Kittens is a $30 deposit if too young to be spayed/neutered and adopter within the state; $50 deposit if adopter outside of Vermont. For Dogs and Puppies it is a $50 deposit if too young to be spayed/neutered and adopter within the state; $100 deposit if adopter outside of Vermont deposit that is refunded when you have your new pet altered.
