At PAWS For Life – Animal Welfare & Protection Society we take the process of adopting a new family member quite seriously.
Due to the problems that can arise when someone is surprised with a “live” gift – we prefer that all potential adopters visit the shelter and visit our dogs in “pawson.”
You should bring the whole family, including dogs, to meet potential new
family members in our meet and greet area.
Home checks may be made for any adopted animal. A yard must be fenced with materials and of a height appropriate for the size and activity level of the dog selected for adoption.
