You will need to provide proof that your pet is up-to-date on vaccinations.  You must also provide proof that he or she has been spayed or neutered.  If the animal needs vaccines or is not spayed or neutered, you must make arrangements to do so.  If you need financial assistance in order to have this done, we may be able to help. 

Once your pet becomes part of the Courtesy Listing Program, we will place their photos and information on our website, with a UAF volunteer listed as the contact for inquiries.  You or a designee will be required to show your dog, a minimum of twice each month, at our weekend adoption events.  Potential adopters must fill out a Matchmaking Questionnaire, will be informed that a home visit is required to ensure the right fit for the pet.  An adoption fee will be payable to UAF by the adopter.  Most people "just want their animal to go to a good home," but UAF requires an adoption fee for several reasons:

Cat 2It shows that your animal has value.  He or she is important to you and you want him or her to be special to someone else as well.  There are many unscrupulous people out there looking for "free to a good home" animals.  Many do NOT have your pet's best interest at heart.

If a potential adopter cannot afford a modest adoption fee, they cannot afford to take care of your animal's medical needs.  You want the best for your animal.  "Free" animals often become homeless animals.  Please remember that we have many years of experience in placing animals in loving forever homes.
