How to Adopt Your Fur-ever Friend

Every Life Matters Animal Rescue is in the business of placing pets in the homes of families who love and adore these often forgotten friends.  We need loving, responsible individuals that are willing to make a commitment to giving one of these precious pets their forever home. In order to make that happen, Every Life Matters Animal Rescue have some guidelines for adoption of these pets.  Please review each carefully to see if you and/or your family could be a fur-ever family.

  1.  In order to ensure the legal ability to take on the responsibility of pet ownership, you must be at least 22 years of age to adopt a pet from us.
  2. You must first seek (if necessary) the approval of your housing source to have a pet on the premises.
  3. The adoption application must be completely filled out with no missing information and electronically signed and emailed to [email protected] 
  4. Your current/ all animals must be spayed/neutered, current on vaccines (Rabies, DAPP & Bordatella) or (FVRCP, FELV, & Rabies), and be on heartworm  prevention, such as; Heartguard, tri- heart, tri -fexis, Sentinal, Revolution etc. 
  5. Completion of the application in no way guarantees the approval to adopt one of our pets.  We will use this information to find the very best home for the pet in question. We do reserve the right to deny any application for any reason.
  6. In addition, there is no guarantee the pet you are applying for is currently available for adoption.
  7. A home visit may be done prior to the approval of any adoption.
  8. Every Life Matters requires a rehoming fee of $200 for dogs/puppies and $100 for cats/kittens to cover food, care, vetting, spay/neutering, micro chipping, vaccinations, worming and other expenses incurred in the care of the pet. 
  9. All adult Pets will come up-to-date on their vaccinations, wormed, micro chipped and spayed/neutered.  There may be additional requirements for the adoption of puppies/Kittens due to the time schedule required for full vaccination and spaying/neutering.  These conditions and special circumstances will be made clear prior to adoption.
  10. Above all else, all adoptive homes must be willing and able to provide excellent care and meeting the veterinary needs of the pet. We will only consider those homes that meet our requirements for stability and prove to be compassionate and loving homes for our pets​.
