About Our Online Application
1. This application is intended for those ready to commit to adopting a particular pet; OR
2. For those who would like to make an appointment to MEET a pet (if the cat of interest is not available at PetSmart or attending our next Saturday Adoption Day to meet a dog is not possible).
In either case, you will be contacted only if your application is approved. Due to limited resources, we are not able to reply to everyone who submits an application.
We usually get multiple applications for the same pet and we review each application and try to match the best home with the pet's specific needs. If the pet has already been adopted, we may suggest other pets we feel would be a good fit.
Veterinary Release of Information
This application asks you to provide veterinarian contact information.
Before filling out an application, we ask that you contact your current or most recent veterinarian and request a "release of information" to Lake Haven.
Doing so authorizes your vet to talk to us. We are unable to process applications without speaking to your current or most recent vet. If you are applying for your first pet and have no vet contact information, please indicate so on the application. ______________________________________________________________
Please Consider the following before you adopt.
Is it the right time to adopt?
Have you done your homework?
Can you afford a new pet?
Do you have any major changes in your life
occurring now or anticipated in the near future?
Can you live with damage to your furniture,
Do you travel a lot?
Do you have children?
Do you have the time to devote to a new pet?
Do you already have pets?
Do you rent?
Does everyone in your home want to adopt a pet?
Please be sure you are ready to adopt before making the plunge. The shelters are full of animals that were purchased or adopted by someone who did not think it all the way through and as a result didn't follow through on their commitment. Adopting a pet on impulse is not the way to go - make sure you can make that lifetime commitment to your new pet.
If you agree that adoption is a long-term commitment as defined above then click on the button below to continue.
