The application process is designed to help us determine if a home matches a pet’s needs and to also assist you in finding a pet most compatible with your lifestyle. All animals are examined by our medical team and routinely monitored while in our care.

Our adoption fee includes: spay/neuter, routine vaccinations and flea/tick/heartworm prevention while in our care, de-worming, and FIV/FeLV testing (cats) or heartworm testing (adult dogs).

We are a volunteer organization serving the Summit County, Ohio area and beyond.  The application review process can take as long as 7-10 days.  If you have any questions during the review process, please email the foster or contact us at
