Adoption Application

  1. It is our intention to place our animals into homes that are the right fit for both the family and the animal. At the Old Drum & Friends Animal Shelter, we practice open adoptions working with you to make sure we are making the best match possible. Open adoptions mean that our adoption process is open to all adoption criteria, and we place our pets in the homes that best fit the animal and the family. It is devastating to the animal to go from home to home and we are working in the animal and the adopter's best interest in determining the best possible match. We will not automatically eliminate a possible home that may not fit rigid criteria, but screening potential homes is an important part of our commitment to the animals that we are adopting.

  2. Completing an application is not a guarantee the selected animal will be placed in your home, but it allows us the opportunity to help you find a pet that matches your expectations. The applications also assist us in customizing and adoption package to provide resources to make the adoption a success.
