Furkids houses over 1,000 rescue cats and dogs in our rescue program. Once you have located the animal you would like to adopt (online or through a PetSmart/Petco adoption center), the first step towards adopting is to fill out an adoption application. Our volunteers work hard to respond to all adoption applications as soon as possible. Below are some of the frequently asked questions regarding our adoption policies and procedures. If you have any further questions regarding our adoption policies or procedures, please e-mail us at adopt@furkids.org.
