Adoption Application

Our goal is to find permanent, loving homes for our cats and dogs so that they do not end up back on the streets and ultimately back at our sanctuary.  Before you visit Open Door, please be sure to discuss a new pet with other family members in the home to make sure they are all in agreement. Prior to meeting our cats and dogs, potential adopters will be asked to complete a questionnaire.  This can be completed and submitted online using the links below.  We reserve the right to decline any applicant who does not meet our adoption requirements. Once your application is received, our kennel or cattery staff will contact you to schedule an adoption appointment.  At the appointment – we hope you will fall in love with one of our furry friends! We will then schedule a visit to your home before finalizing the adoption.  Once this is done, your new best friend will be ready to come home.  There will be paperwork to sign and an adoption fee to pay.

Our adoption fee is $75 for adult cats (age one and over) and $150 for all dogs/puppies and kittens.  The adoption fee includes:

  • spay/neuter
  • vaccinations (including rabies for animals over 4 months old)
  • microchip
  • current on heartworm preventative (dogs and puppies)
  • current on flea/tick preventative (all animals)

We will send you home with:

  • your cat or dog’s medical records
  • microchip registration
  • a starter bag of Purina One food
  • a bag of cat or dog goodies (treats, toys & more!)
  • collar, lead and ID tags (for dogs)
