Adoption Application

Please read the following before filling out this application. The entire process will take about 20-25 minutes, so please be prepared ahead of time. Thank you.           
Filling out a profile (application) online for an animal will save you a lot of time with the adoption process. However, once you are approved, it does NOT guarantee you that particular animal. Adoptions can only take place AFTER you physically meet an animal and are also 'approved' to adopt. Adoptions are done on a first come, first served basis here at the shelter, again after meeting the animal. It does not matter when you filled out the paperwork, whoever is first in line with an animal that they feel is a good fit, will have the chance to adopt first. (If they have not filled out an application, they will have to do that right then and there to be approved. If an application has already been filled out online, submitted, and approved, the complete process will go must faster.) 

 

Adoption Application
This profile must be completed by the individual over the age of 18 who will be responsible for the care of the pet. The information you provide will help us find the best match for you and your family. Thank you for filling out this profile, choosing a shelter animal, and saving a life. 
I am interested in adopting:
·         Information you provide is utilized for ensuring the best match possible and for landlord approval, if needed.
·         Valid and current photo ID must be provided for all adults on this application prior to any approval.
·         A Wisconsin Simple Case Search (background check) will be performed on all adoption applicants.
·         An approved application does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt the animal of your choice.
