Halfway There Rescue is looking for responsible and caring individuals and families to give our pets forever homes. Please review the initial adoption guidelines below. Thank you for considering animal adoption.
You must be 18 years old or older in order to adopt one of our pets.
You must be allowed to have pets where you live.
All adoption applications must be filled out in their entirety using the link below.
The online adoption application below is for your convenience only, and does not guarantee that the pet of your choice will be available for adoption. We reserve the right to refuse any adoption to any person for any reason.
All adoptive homes must be stable, compassionate, and capable of meeting the veterinary needs of the pet.
A home visit may be done prior to adoption.
Effective June 15, 2015: Due to increased veterinary costs and fees, our adoption fee will be $200 per dog. Applications received on or after June 15, 2015 will be subject to this fee. Kitten and cat adoption fees will remain $100. Thank you so much for your understanding.
Anyone wishing to adopt a pet from Halfway There Rescue will need to complete an adoption application which can be found on our website below. We do not schedule meet and greets prior to receiving an application. Please allow 3-4 days for us to review the adoption application and schedule a home visit. Once approved, a meet and greet will be scheduled to give you and your family an opportunity to meet the animal. All animals adopted through Halfway There Rescue will be spayed/neutered (6 months and older), receive a microchip (6 months and older), receive their rabies vaccination (dogs 4 months and older), receive all age appropriate DHLPP vaccinations, be tested for heartworm (dogs 8 months and older), and be dewormed. Any animal not already altered, will need to be spayed/neutered and microchipped by 6 months of age and these services are included with your adoption fee. Vaccines that are not able to be completed at the time of adoption (due to the animal's age) are not covered with the adoption fee. Prior to the adoption of any animal through Halfway There Rescue, an adoption contract must be signed and given to a Halfway There representative. In addition, the adoption fee of $200 (dogs) or $100 (cats) must be received prior to the adopter picking up the animal.
