Our Adoption Process

Read through our process completely first then, Our adoptions now go through Shelterluv software. You may also click on an adoptable dogs photo to get to an adoption link/application.

Complete an Adoption Questionnaire at the links below.

That starts the process.

  • If you are interested in applying for a specific animal on the website, please be sure to list their names on your questionnaire. If you cannot select an animal please still submit your questionnaire and write in the notes what type of animal you are looking for! Please note that submitting an application is the first step in our process and does not guarantee adoption of a particular dog or cat. Please email us at if you have any questions!


  • You will be contacted via email by a Chasin Tails member, Adoption Coordinator or Screener within 24-48 hours of submitting your questionnaire. They will then schedule an initial phone screening to further discuss your needs, preferences and lifestyle as you look for a new family member.


  • Your Chasin Tails representative will also conduct any required checks, including a vet check to ensure your pets are up to date on medical needs, a landlord check if needed and you rent, and will set up a home visit - during which a knowledgeable volunteer will schedule and meet with all residents of your home to identify any risks or items to monitor when your new pet arrives and ensure that everyone is ready to welcome them home!



  • Following steps 1-3, you will either be approved to adopt the dog or cat you are interested in or Pre-Approved if you don’t see the particular type of animal you are interested in. You can view the list of current animals online at . Or you can work with your Adoption Coordinator to set up a meeting at a convenient time to meet and greet an animal we have near you. If we don’t have the breed or size you are looking for, we can also work with our shelter partners to find one.
