our adoption/FOSTER protocols

Before submitting an adoption/foster application, please read below to ensure the proper steps are taken.

  • Applicant MUST be over 24 years old to apply.  Prior to applying, kindly consult with your partner or other members of your household. Taking on the responsibility of adopting a pet is a significant commitment.

  • Following the submission of your application, an Application Coordinator will be in touch with you to go over your application and coordinate a virtual home visit using FaceTime or Zoom. Some pets could be in high demand, so applicants are encouraged to follow up via email at

  • We will reach out to 2 references (these can be neighbors, friends colleagues, but no family members). Ensure they are aware of our contact, as any lack of preparedness on their part may result in a delay in processing your application.

  • We will reach out to one veterinarian reference for information on your current or deceased pet. Please provide a comprehensive list of all your pets, including their names, in the application.

  • Once you are pre-approved to meet the pet, a meet and greet will be set-up with you, your family, and any current pets.

  • Lend-a-Paw Inc. reserves the right to make the final decision in order to determine the most suitable match for the pet. Additional information may be requested at any point to ensure the completion of the adoption verification
