Some of our rescues have had a rough beginning. Our goal is to place them in their best possible forever homes. Our adoption process is NOT on a first come first serve basis, but is structured to find the best fit for our rescues and our potential adopters. We retain the right to refuse adoption to anyone, for any reason.
Our volunteers try their hardest to contact every applicant in a timely manner. The adoption team processes adoption applications 2-3 times per week. If you have not heard from the adoption team within 5 business days AFTER submitting your application, we encourage you to send a follow-up email on our contact page.
We have a ton of cuties ready to meet you!
The Adoption Process
- Adoption Applicaton
We require an adoption application to be completed.
You can complete one online, print a copy and mail it, or you can pick up a hard copy at one of our partner PetSmart locations.
- Veterinary Reference
PLEASE make sure to give your vet permission to release records to our adoption team.
- Proof of Home Ownership OR Landlord Approval
- Home Visit
One of our adoption team volunteers will make an appointment for a quick home visit to make sure you are set up for your new arrival(s)!
(Please note that due to COVID-19, we are currently doing virtual home visits until further notice.)
- Adoption Day!
Once steps 1-4 are completed and approved, we will set up a time for you to pick up your new family member(s)!

Often times, our rescues require out of the ordinary veterinary care which Scruffy Paws Animal Rescue provides. This may include but not limited to: dental work, hernia repairs, polyp removals, blood work panels, x-rays, emergency/sick visits, antibiotics, and so forth.
Our veterinary costs generally outweigh our adoption fees, so PLEASE consider making a donation to assist with another animal in need!
