Our Adoption Process

How to Relinquish a Pet


  1. After you have decided to give up a pet you will need to contact us directly.
  2. Call our facility at 513.388.9998.
  3. If no one answers, please leave a message, we are a very busy volunteer only organization.
  4. When you speak with a representative, we will ask you questions about the pet and why you feel you need to give it up.
  5. Likely, you will then be placed on a waiting list.
  6. Once on the waiting list, we will call in order as space in the facility becomes available.
  7. If you find other arrangements before your turn, please call us so we can remove your pet from the list and keep an accurate count of animals waiting to come in.
  8. Once you are able to bring the animal to us, be sure to have a photo ID ready.
  9. You will be asked to sign a document describing the pet, details about its behavior, etc. so we know what kind of home we are looking for for the animal.
  10. We will make a copy of your ID and after the paperwork is signed, we will not likely need anything else.
  11. If you would like to bring food, litter, toys, etc that the animal is familiar with, you are welcome to do so.


Our Bird Policy


Meeting our birds REQUIRES an APPOINTMENT. If you would like to meet any of the birds we currently have please call the shelter directly. We do not keep staff that can handle the birds in the shelter everyday so it is important that you schedule so we can make sure you come at an appropriate time and day. Our birds are kept away from the public to increase safety for birds and visitors, and also to reduce stress for the birds. Some birds are also kept in foster so that all of their needs can be met. If you have any questions about any of our birds or would like to schedule some time to come meet them please contact us at 513.388.9998.

Our Kitten Adoption Policy


Kittens on the adoption floor are available for adoption/deposit but are NOT permitted to leave the facility until:

  1. They have received their second FVRCP vaccine.
  2. They have been assessed by a DVM.
  3. They weigh more than 2 pounds AND are over 8 weeks old.
  4. They have been spayed or neutered.
  5. You are welcome to put a deposit on one that has not yet met this criteria but they must remain in our custody until ALL of these criteria have been met.  NO EXCEPTIONS.

If you are interested in putting a deposit down please:

  1. Come to our facility and fill out an adoption application (Application must be approved to proceed).
  2. Fill out a deposit agreement.
  3. Leave a $25 deposit.

*Please let us know if you would like the kitten microchipped for an additional $25 (added to the total $50 adoption fee).


Interested in Volunteering or Troop Project

  1.  Anyone interested in being a volunteer will need to come to the facility to pick up an application.
  2. Volunteers must be 16 years or older to be present without a parent.
  3. Volunteers under 16 years old must have a parent with them at all times.
  4. We do not have "shifts" but volunteers will need to sign up on our volunteer board so we know when/how much help we have day to day.
  5. Volunteers are asked to help clean the facility, brush animals, or help with special tasks.

We welcome scout troops to help make enrichment items for the animals, 

but group visits will need to be scheduled ahead of time.
