  • What happens if, after bringing my newly adopted cat or dog home, I find it’s not a good fit for my family?
    We encourage you to give your new pet at least two weeks to adjust to a new home before deciding it’s not a good fit. Your new pet will have had a very busy and stressful couple of days at the Mega Adoption Event and will need some time to get used to the new family and environment. If, after some transition time, it’s still not working out, please call the organization from which you adopted your new pet. They can give you advice on any problems you are having or can schedule a day/time for you to bring the animal back to their facility. (Please keep in mind that the $35 adoption fee is considered a donation and is non-refundable.)
  • What happens if, after bringing my newly adopted cat or dog home, he or she ends up being sick?
    Please call the organization you adopted from right away, and they will give you information on next steps. Each shelter or rescue group has a veterinary team responsible for exams and care of the animals prior to the event, and there will be a team at the event itself to keep an eye on rudimentary symptoms. Each organization will do their best to adopt out only healthy animals, but it is inevitable that some animals may not show symptoms until days after they are home. This is why it is important that you call the organization from which you adopted right away if you notice that your new pet is starting to get sick.
  • $35 is too cheap! Same day adoptions are irresponsible! Won’t you put pets into bad homes with these practices?
    All participating shelters and rescue organizations will have same-day adoptions during the Mega Adoption Event, and these groups will provide screenings for individuals interested in adopting one of their animals. We promote Open Adoptions, a philosophy that focuses more on finding the right home for animals as individuals rather than adhering to strict adoption policies and unnecessary paperwork. This approach is consistent with the practices recommended by all the majority of national organizations working towards no-kill communities. It is important to note that an essential aspect of Open Adoptions is the right to say no – no shelter or rescue organization is required to adopt out any animal to anyone that they feel would not be a good fit. The first priority is the safety and well-being of the animals.
  • Do you have puppies or small dogs?
    We help puppies and small dogs on a regular basis. They tend to get adopted quickly, so arriving early will help you find a match.
  • Do you have a specific breed?
    We never know for sure the breed mix of our dogs since they are rescues. We do often receive dogs that appear to be a specific breed, and they will be listed in our website adoptables listing. These are typically the more commonly found breeds like Shepherds, Huskies, Hounds, Beagles, and Chihuahuas. For less common breeds, you may be best to check with a rescue specializing in the breed, such as Golden Retrievers, Doodles, French Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, Irish Setters, Poodles, Bichons, and Schnauzers.
  • Do you have hypoallergenic dogs?
    We never know a breed mix for sure, and which dog will impact allergies is often different from person to person. We can’t guarantee that any of our dogs are hypoallergenic. Your best bet is to stop by and assess whether a dog could be a match for your family.
