We are in the process of transitioning to our new shelter software. If things look a little off, don’t worry – they will be fixed shortly! Thank you for your patience.
Although we are currently closed for walk-in adoptions, we are more motivated than ever by our mission of helping our residents find loving homes during this time. Our Adoption team will be working with potential adopters through phone calls and scheduled appointments to complete adoptions. Thank you for your understanding during this time – we are excited to help you find your perfect animal companion!
- If you are interested in adopting, please submit an application. If you have submitted an application within the past 90 days, we will still have your application on file.
- Next, please reach out to our Adoption team to speak with an Adoption Counselor about the specific animal or species you are interested in adopting. The best way to do this will be by email at AdoptionInfo@ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org.
- An Adoption Counselor will respond to your inquiry with answers to your questions and help you set up a time for a virtual meet and greet, at which time the animals’ behavioral and medical histories will be discussed with you.
- If you and your family are still interested in adopting, an in-person meet and greet will be scheduled. At this time, any additional meet and greets (such as with your resident dog) can be completed as well.
- All of the standard adoption guidelines will apply.
Thank you for your interest in adopting a homeless cat! Before you get started, take a moment to read our adoption guidelines to learn more about adopting from Animal Friends. Once you’re ready to meet your match, start your application or contact our Adoption team with any questions.
