The screening process may seem excessive and time consuming but it is an important step in deciding which home is most appropriate for each dog. Adoption screening also ensures that you adopt an animal that is right for you and your family. Like people, animals have their own personalities, temprament and requirements. Not every animal is right for every home. Applicants must be 21 years of age to apply.
