Frequently Asked Questions

How old do you need to be to adopt an animal?

You must be 18 years old to adopt an animal. There are contracts you must sign.

Why do you charge an adoption fee?

Our adoption fees includes:

How long does the adoption process take?

That varies. You can fill out your adoption application online before you visit All4Paws, that way if we have any questions we can take care of that before you come in. After the application is approved you come in and meet your new family member. We will have you sign a contract and go over some information and you and your new family member are on your way.

Where do you get most of your animals?

Our animals come from a variety of places. We will pull from high kill shelters mostly, people who have had to surrender their pets, or animals that have been lost or abandoned.

I just found a cat/dog or a litter of puppies/kittens, can you help?

We have to get approval from Allison, our facility director.  The volunteers at the front desk do not have the authority to approve a surrender.  All4Paws will email you a surrender form, or click here, for you to fill out to the best of your ability and email it back to us along with pictures of the animal. We will contact you 24 to 48 working hours if we are able to help.

What type of food do you feed the animals?

All our animals get fed a grain free diet, unless there are special dietary needs.

What type of supplies can I donate?

Our animals love towels, bedding, pillows, and rugs. You can also check out our Donate page to see what else All4Paws current needs and wish list are.  At this time we do not need newspapers.
