Adopt - Please review the steps in our adoption processHow to adopt a cat or dog from ABC

When you choose to adopt, you provide a homeless cat or dog with a loving, forever home. It also provides financial support and frees up space for us to be able to rescue, rehabilitate, and adopt another animal in need.

Each animal’s story is unique, just like their personality and behaviors, which we try to capture in their bio. Based on your adoption questionnaire answers, we strive to match you with an animal that suits your lifestyle and living situation. All adoption questionnaires are reviewed by our volunteer administrative staff, so we appreciate your patience. Please take a moment to review our adoption process below.

Once your adoption is complete, ABC will continue to support your questions, concerns, or issues to help ensure a successful adoption. Our commitment is for the lifetime of the animal. If an unexpected event occurs and an adopter needs to return their cat or dog, ABC will always take the animal back.
