A non-refundable hold fee, ranging from $35-$50 depending on the adoption fee, may be placed on a potential family member making them unavailable to other adopters until 5:00 PM the next business day. Holds may only be placed on animal once you have submitted your application, it has been approved, and you have met the animal you are interested in adopting. We do not accept holds over the phone. Every moment an animal is on hold is a missed opportunity for someone else to meet them–so we ask that you take that into consideration.
Note, we are closed on Wednesdays for adoptions, so holds placed on Tuesdays are good until 5:00 PM on Thursday.
