Adoption Policies

(Please read before completing the application)

*Note: We will not accept any applications submitted on the incorrect application. Dog applications must be submitted on the dog application and cat applications must be submitted on the cat application.

If any of the following are not acceptable to you, please do not apply. We will immediately reject an application if the Applicant has provided false, misleading, or erroneous information.

  • The owners of the home must complete the application and all adults in the home must provide their information.
  • You must be at least 21 years old to adopt from us.
  • Due to the location of our foster homes we restrict our adoption geographical area to no more than 1.5/ 2 hours drive from the Baltimore area.  For harder to adopt animals we will make an exception for northern VA/DC, Central PA and Southern DE.
  • We will conduct background checks and home visits; no exceptions!
  • Our non-negotiable adoption fee covers; spaying/neutering, age appropriate vaccinations, micro-chipping, preventative medications and any medical needs before adoption. We DO NOT make any money on the fee; in fact the adoption fee never covers our expenses.
  • Any current animals in the home must be altered and up to date on vaccinations (unless you have an exemption letter from your Veterinarian due to health issues).

    We will check with your Veterinarian and reject all applications which don’t comply.

  • We accept renters but will need written permission from the Landlord.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the Pre-Adoption Application Form.

You will be contacted shortly to acknowledge the receipt of your application and to discuss further steps in the adoption process. Please be aware that we are all volunteers and work full-time, but will endeavor to respond to you as soon as possible. Once your Pre-Adoption Application has been approved you will be contacted to arrange a home visit. The home visit will assess the safety and suitability of the environment for the pet. The home visit is also the opportunity to see if the pet will be a good fit for your family and any existing pets.

Please be aware that Pitties & Purrs Rescue Inc. reserve the right to deny an application at any stage of the process without explanation.
