Peace, Love and Animals goes through great lengths when finding our pets the perfect home.
Peace, Love and Animals has a multistep adoption process to ensure that every animal we send to a home will be sent to the perfect home for life. If you are interested in adoption please read through the process below.
1. First fill out our Adoption Application and send it to us: Adoption Application (PDF).

During review, your vet will be contacted for reference on past and present pets. If you currently don't have pets and do not have a vet, we recommend checking for vets in your area and have one selected for when we do a home visit.
2. The next step involves a home visit
We strongly feel that this is one of the most important steps to in our adoption process. Home visits tell us if the pet is compatible with other pets that you may already have and that the pet doesn't have any problems with its new environment. The pet should feel comfortable with the surrounding environment, and meeting all the members of your entire family. The home visit gives us the opportunity to know if everyone is in agreement to the adoption and is comfortable with it.
3. Adoption contract and adoption fee
After the home visit and you are approved for adoption, there is an adoption fee as well as an adoption contract. The contract is your word in writing that you will take the best care for the pet and that they will live out the rest of their lives with a loving family. The fee helps us cover some of our vetting expenses of the pet, including vaccinations and neutering/spaying.
Introducing a new pet to your home can be stressful for both you and your new addition. This is especially true if there are children or other animals in the home. Being prepared ahead of time will go a long way toward making the homecoming experience an easy one for everyone.
Make sure to have everything your pet will need -- food, bowls, leash, dog collar, dog bed, and toys -- before you bring him or her home. The presence of these items will help assure your new pet that everything is going to be all right.
