Adoption Guidelines

If you are interested in adopting one of our pets, please read the adoption guidelines and complete the online adoption application, or email us at edgewateranimalshelter@gmail.com with any questions. Please allow us 48 hours to get back to you after emailing. Once approved to adopt, you may complete the online adoption contract and either pay the adoption fee online via the Donate button or pay it when you pick up your pet. We CANNOT hold a pet for anyone unless the adoption fee has been paid. Submitting an application does not obligate you to adopt.

Our adoption process includes a 72-hour foster to adopt period. If your new pet does not work out they can be returned to the shelter no questions asked.

Thank you for your kind generosity in considering a rescue shelter animal! It will take time and energy to nurture your new pet. In order to assist you in ensuring its safety and well being, we urge you to review the following information.

Please give your new dog/cat a week or two to settle into your home. Particular care should be exercised when letting the animal out. A newly relocated animal has no sense of home and should be kept on a leash or in a fenced-in area until this process has taken place (usually a few weeks at best).

Do remember that your new pet has been, until recently, living in a kennel so home life constitutes a major adjustment on his/her part. It may not sleep through the night at first and may or may not be house trained. Other adjustment issues may present themselves if your home already has other pets. In our experience, time, love and patience will overcome most issues that arise.
