Frequently Asked Questions


  • How do I adopt an animal from you?
    • Animals can be found on our Petfinder Page.  All prospective adopters must complete an adoption application
    • What is a Foster To Adopt?
      • Foster to adopt is a pet status, where the pet is placed in an approved home for care.  Fur and Tails Animal Rescue continues responsibility for the animal,  While the prospective adopter cares for the animal.  This is an excellent solution for animals that need to acclimate to new situations and families.  When the time comes, the adopter completes the adoption contract and the animal ownership passes to the new owners. 
    • What is the adoption process?
      • All adoptions start with the completion of the adoption application.  You will be notified by telephone call or text message IF your application moves to the next step.  Please remember that all applications are not automatically approved.  Our team considers each applicant and makes final adoption decisions based on the best home situation and outcome for the animal.  The needs of the animal are our primary concern.
