All applications are reviewed to ensure a family is the right fit for an animal. We often receive several applications for one animal. Unfortunately, we can only pick one home. However, we may find that your application is an even better fit for another animal in our care!
Peace Love and Paws Rescue completes a criminal history background check and a veterinary check to ensure animals are in safe hands. You may receive a phone call from your veterinary office asking for permission to speak with a rescue. Once you provide clearance, we ask general questions about the care of your current or previous animals.
Should your application be selected and your background checks return clear, an adoption counselor will reach out to you and discuss the animal (or another!) that you applied for. The conversation allows us to learn more about you and your family and provides you a chance to ask us questions too!
A home visit is required to ensure your home is safe for the animal. This may occur virtually through one of several platforms (i.e., Zoom, Google Meet, Facebook Messenger) or in person. Home visits are generally scheduled at the time of the phone interview.
Meet and Greets are our favorite part! This is the chance for you to meet the animal. This is generally done at the foster's home as this is the space the animal is most comfortable in. Should you and the animal fall in love with each other, we can plan for the adoption!
