Please read ALL the following information carefully before applying:
You must be 21 or older to adopt a cat or small animal from LAWS- we will ask for proof of verification.
If your current housing situation is temporary, such as a rental, please carefully consider whether you'll be able to take your pet with you to new housing. The most common reason for relinquishment to a shelter is ‘moving and cannot take with’. If you have any doubt of your ability to provide a forever home, please consider fostering instead of adoption. We are always looking for feline and canine fosters. LAWS pays all expenses! You can find out more about fostering on our Foster Page.
Read all questions carefully and provide full answers to every question posed. If responses to the questions posed below are not full and complete, the application cannot be processed.
