Virtual Adoption Process
We are excited to announce the launch of virtual adoption services at Rescue Village! Now, it’s easier now than ever to find your next family member. From the comfort of your home, you can select an animal, set up a virtual meet-and-greet, and conduct an adoption counseling session.
Our adoption center is closed to the public, but we are very much open for adoptions. We have many wonderful animals waiting to meet you.
STEP 1: MEET YOUR MATCH… ONLINE!
Find an animal you are interested in, who is either in our shelter or currently lives in a temporary foster home, by searching our online database of Dogs and Cats. Adoptable animals are viewable online, in real time.
STEP 2: SUBMIT AN ONLINE ADOPTION SURVEY
For those interested in moving forward with adoption, you would fill out one of our quick online surveys to let us know who you are interested in “meeting”, along with some information about your home and family. Online adoption surveys are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Once received, an RV adoption counselor will reach out as soon as possible to schedule a video counseling session with the animal.
If there is an animal you would like to learn more about or meet, please fill out the Adoption Survey below form:
STEP 3: COMPLETE VIRTUAL COUNSELING
All adoption counseling will occur virtually, by video call. During the virtual counseling session, the adoption counselor will review important background about the animal–including all medical and behavioral information we have on record. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions. We’ll talk about considerations to have when welcoming your newest family member into your home and other species-specific topics. We ask that you be prepared to bring home your pet within 24-48 hours of your counseling session.
STEP 4: ARRANGE PICKUP WITH FOSTER & TAKE YOUR ANIMAL HOME!
Once counseling is complete, you will schedule a time to come to the shelter to pick up your new animal, curbside! Please bring an appropriate means of transporting your animal to your home (leash, crate). Everything will be completely contactless and follow strict social distancing protocols.
