Complete your adoption application, including your veterinarian information, landlord, etc. We know our application may seem lengthy, but our questions are necessary to help make a good adoption match. If you do not currently have a vet, please indicate the vet you intend to use for your new pet. When all questions are answered, please e-mail as attachment back to our Adoption Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org .
2) Initial Telephone Interview
Within 1 - 5 days after online submittal of your application a representative will conduct your initial interview by telephone.
3) Reference Check
A WAR representative will call all references, especially your vet and landlord (if applicable).
4) The Home Visit
If WAR finds all references give positive feedback and every other requirement has been met to this phase of our process, one of our Adoption Committee members may contact you to arrange a brief home visit. We will ask you to demonstrate a day in the life of your potential adopted pet and evaluate the environment and conditions for the pet.
5) Adoption Approval
After the home visit, our Adoption Committee convenes - usually virtually - to discuss your application and lessons learned as we worked through each phase of our process. From this collaborative review, our Adoption Committee will make the final decision on your application and inform you of their decision in short order.
We do not release any information collected from references, the home visit, or any other source used to make our decision on applicants.
When you are approved to adopt a pet, you must sign and submit legally binding adoption contract along with your adoption donation recommended minimum adoption donations are 50.00 to 250.00 depending on the animal.
Pick your new pet up from the applicable foster home.
6) Multiple Applications for the Same Pet
If we have multiple applications submitted for the same pet, our adoption committee will make a decision based on the best home for the particular pet. We do not process applications or adopt our pets out on a 'first-come, first-served' basis.
If you are not chosen for a particular pet, please do not be offended or insulted. Our first priority is to find the absolute best home for our pets, each of whom has unique characteristics and attributes. WAR will assist you in selecting another, or will suggest other pets that will be best suited for your particular circumstances.
WAR conducts a thorough matching process per applicant to be certain the pet you indicate on your application is the best fit for your household. If we determine your desired pet is not the best fit, we will suggest another pet or pets that would be more appropriate.
