 Our Pet Adoption Principles

We are not a first-come-first-served source of adoptable pets and we do not do on-the-spot adoptions. We screen all prospective adoptive families for suitability before we will release one of our pets for adoption. We do not consider adoption requests until we receive completed, written adoption applications. We often receive numerous applications on individual pets. We then work to choose the best fit between adoptive families and pets, keeping the needs of the pet foremost in our minds. We always require a home visit with prospective adoptive families prior to final approval and release of a pet. We try to limit our travel time for home visits to a two-hour driving range (about 75 miles) from Morganton, NC.

Any of our adoptable pets that are more than six months old will have been spayed or neutered prior to their release for adoption. When we release one of our pets for adoption, all of its vaccinations and worming treatments will be up-to-date and it will be current on preventive medications. All of our pets come with health guarantees from our veterinarian.

We offer 25% discounts on the adoption fee to senior citizens and to active, reserve, separated or retired veterans.

Please direct any questions you may have about adopting one of our available pets to our Adoption Director, Donna Street, at


Animals that are reported lost or owners that need help in re-homing their pet are encouraged to visit us on our Facebook page and send us a request.
