You can preview of the application to review the questions you’ll need to answer:
8. Approval of Application.
Once you have submitted your application, whether online, or given it to a one of our Adoption Coordinators, allow a few days for processing. The Adoption Counselor will follow-up with your references/and or veterinary.
Some one from YOUR Humane Society SPCA will call you to let you know if you’ve been approved, or they may have additional questions to ask you. You must set up a meet & greet with your potential adoptable pet and existing pet.
Once you’ve been approved, work with the Adoption Counselor to set up a day/time for the adoption. Our trained adoption counselors will meet with you to ensure the pet is a good fit for your home, family and lifestyle. This is a great time to ask any questions you may have. Then, you can spend time with the animal or animals you are interested in.
9. Meet with the Adoption Counselor to review and sign the paperwork to become the new Pet Owner.
What to bring with you:
* Driver’s license (or State of FL ID card) with current address.
* Payment types accepted: Cash, Check, Visa, AMEX, MasterCard or Discover.
