Adopting a rescued animal brings many rewards, saves a life, and opens up space for another animal in need.  However, animal adoption is something that should be considered carefully and is NOT always the BEST choice for everyone. . Rescued animals do NOT come with a guarantee and medical expenses are a very real possibility.  While we appreciate you considering one of our rescued animals we want to make sure that you understand and consider all the possibilities before adopting.  

Once you have submitted your applications you will be sent to our home page.  Once you have seen the home page your application will be submitted to a GTAS coordinator.

To ensure the best possible match for both human and animal, we require the following:

  • Completed application form (cats & dogs) and pre-adoption questionnaire (dogs only)
  • Background Check
  • Personal References
  • Veterinary Reference
  • Possible Home Visit

In order to be considered for an adoption you must be:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • Have the knowledge and consent of all adults in your home
  • Have verifiable identification (i.e. driver's license)
  • If renting, have landlords consent

Once you have completed the above, you will be notified if you are approved to adopt. You can let us know which animal you would like to meet and a visit will be arranged or we will let you know where you can pick up your new addition to the family.

Your new animal will have, as a minimum, the following:

  • Vet examination  - initial treatments as shown on the animal's intake and medical assessment. 
  • Spay or neuter
  • Heart worm test for dogs; feline luekemia test for cats
  • De-wormer for intestinal parasites
  • Flea and tick preventative treatment

We have cats available for adoption at the Saint Louis Park Petsmart,and at  Roseville Petsmart.   Applications are on-line only.  Cash only.   An option is available to make payment on our webpage and find a donation button.  Petsmart associates will confirm confirmation emails on on-line payments.  

. You can visit them there during normal business hours.
