If you would like to adopt an animal from Safe Haven Pet Rescue, you may download the Adoption Application at the bottom of this page. Please contact me to set up an appointment & bring along the completed form. 

Once you have completed the adoption application, we will proceed with a background check.  The background check consists of:  (1) an interview with you, during which you

will be asked to provide proof of identity; and (2) veterinary reference checks, particularly if you have other animals at home.



Upon successful completion of the background check, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay the specified adoption fee.  The adoption fee covers the cost of veterinary care, de-worming, heartworm-testing (seasonal) and vaccines your pet received while in the care of the Safe Haven Pet Rescue.  All animals adopted from S.H.P.R. are spayed or neutered and tattooed.



  • Animals are available for adoption only to persons approved by the Safe Haven Pet Rescue.  Approval is determined based on the successful completion of the adoption process as described above & compatability.

  • For persons living in rental property, the permission of the landlord is required before the adoption can be approved.

  • The adoption will not be approved if the animal is being adopted as a gift for another person.

  • Animals are to be kept as household pets only.

  • Cats must be adopted as indoor pets only.

  • All animals will be spayed or neutered.
