Adoption Procedures & Fees

Thank you for choosing to rescue! Please review our policies and procedures.

 

  • All pets are spayed / neutered prior to adoption.

  • All pets are up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines, dewormed, given a monthly preventative for flea/tick and microchipped. In addition, kittens/cats are FIV/FeLV tested.  Dogs are heartworm tested and given a monthly preventative. Medical records are provided at the time of adoption.

  • Any known behavioral issues will be discussed prior to adoption to ensure a good placement for the pet.

  • Anyone looking to adopt must fill out an application and attend an adoption event. 

  • All adoptions take place at events unless the pet has special needs that prevent them from attending.

  • Applications do not hold, reserve, or secure adoptions of an animal.

Adoption Fees

We accept cash, credit, and checks

with proof of identification.

Adoption Fees are non-refundable as they are a donation to a 501c3 charity.

Please allow at least 48 hours for return to be processed and animal to be placed

Adoption Event Guidelines

  • To be considered for any pet, you need to attend the event, sign-in with an NPA representative, and participate in an interview with an adoption counselor. 

    • Note: for puppies and kittens, we will only accept applications during the first 20-30 minutes of the event. 

  • After all adoption applicants are interviewed, we will choose based on who is the best fit for the pet(s). We do not have a first come, first serve policy. All applicants who arrive within the required timeframe will be considered.

    • For kitten adoptions, priority will be given to pair adoptions first (two kittens or a Mom and kitten).

    • Kittens must be adopted into a household with other pets (cats or dogs), or be adopted with another kitten or cat . On rare occasions, we will adopt single kittens to households with no other pets if we feel it's in the best interest of the kitten.

    • We do not allow littermate adoptions for puppies.

  • In the event there is more than one applicant that is equally qualified, we will do a fair drawing to determine placement.

  • NOVA Pets Alive reserves the right to refuse adoption for any reason. Placement of any pet is at the sole discretion of NPA.
