Adopt A Pet

   
 
 

WV Pet, Inc. Adoption Application

WV Pet, Inc. strives to meet the needs of our pets by placing them in permanent loving homes. Our goal is to match each adopter with a pet that best fits their lifestyle to ensure the dog’s best chance at a forever home. Please fill out this application as completely and truthfully as possible to help us accomplish this. We have adoption guidelines in place, and we reserve the right to refuse any adoption that we feel is unsuitable. We know you are anxious to adopt your new pet, but please be patient as we are an all volunteer rescue, and the approval process may take five days or longer to complete. Also, please understand that there may be applications already pending on the pet that you have your heart set on. Applications are generally considered on a first-come first-serve basis, but if there are multiple applications on the same dog, we will select the home that is the best fit. All of our pets are vaccinated, wormed, micro-chipped, and spay/neutered (if age appropriate over 6 months) before being adopted. Our adoption fee is $150-$200 which helps with the cost of vetting and care, any additional care needed will be at the adopter(s) expense. If adopting an unaltered pet, it will be the adopter’s responsibility to have the pet’s spay/neuter performed by one year of age. Documentation of spay/neuter will need to be provided to WV Pet, Inc. before the adoption will be considered finalized.

THANK YOU for wanting to rescue one of our pets!

All prospective adopters:

  • Must be at least 21 years old with photo identification showing their present address
  • Must be able/willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide medical treatment and proper care
  • Must be willing to give this pet time to adjust to their new home before considering returning them
  • Must have consent from their landlord (if applicable)
  • Must agree to pay the $10 non refundable application fee
