Rehoming & Surrender​

  • What can I expect when I adopt an animal from Pet Network?
    You can expect a warm Adopters Welcome approach to companionship where each adoption is filled with resources to set an adopter up for success. For more information about adopters welcome, click here.
  • Is the animal that I am adopting altered and/or vaccinated?
    YES! Every animal that leaves our care will be microchipped, dewormed, given flea/tick prevention, spay/neutered, and vaccinated (based on age and length of stay).
  • If I am interested in adopting an animal from you, can you hold them for me?
    No, unfortunately we do not place holds on any of our animals and all animals are on a first come first serve basis.
  • Why are some animals priced higher than others?
    Some animals may have a higher adoption fee to help support other animals in their journey to finding a home.
