Every animal that comes through Home Fur Keeps lives in a foster home. We do not have a physical facility where people can visit and meet multiple animals. Every animal in our care will have its own listing on our website, with behavioral information and updates on its progress. Our foster homes are ideal for our organization to observe the animal’s behavior and temperament. We need time to be able to determine the animal’s quirks and what type of permanent home will be ideal for the animal.

All our animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They will also be up to date on all vaccines and will be micro-chipped. Your first task is to fill out an adoption application. Please do not wait to submit an application until you’ve fallen in love with an animal — if you have intentions to adopt, please submit your application at your earliest convenience. It may take time to process your application.

Additionally, one of our volunteers will conduct a phone interview, and a mandatory home check must be done prior to your first adoption. We request to inspect your home to ensure its a pet-friendly, safe environment for the animal. Every animal has different needs, so we want to be sure we’re placing the animal in a proper home. Please don’t adopt an animal into your home without making the commitment to care for, cherish, and love it for their entire lives.

Once you become a verified and approved adopter you are welcome to search our database and inquire about any animals you are interested in adopting. Additionally, since you will become a public member of Home Fur Keeps, rescues, individuals, or our organization may also try to pair you with the perfect animal. Once you express interest in an animal you are welcome to coordinate a meet and greet with the foster family.

Home Fur Keeps also sponsors out-of-state adoptions and our volunteers work together to transport animals from high-kill shelters to cities nationwide that have lower animal populations.

Please stay in touch with us and let us help you find the perfect addition to your family. And once a Home Fur Keeps animal has joined your family please don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us. Training questions, medication questions, and anything in between are encouraged. We thank you for coming to Home Fur Keeps to adopt your next animal. We think very highly of our dogs and enjoy sharing them with the world. Every animal we remove from a foster home and place into a permanent home is another animal that we are able to rescue. For specific questions, please contact our Adoption Coordinator at info@homefurkeeps.org or. . .


Adoption FAQ’s


Adoption FAQ’s


Most of our animals come from high-kill shelters that are at risk for euthanasia
No – please do not wait to send in an application! Applications take time to process. If you are looking to adopt an animal, please fill out an application and send it back to us at your earliest convenience. We will work with you to find a pet that best matches your lifestyle needs.
If you search through our animal listings and come across a specific pet you are interested in adopting, please send a message to the poster or contact us at info@homefurkeeps.org. They will work with you to schedule a time to meet your potential match.
We recommend you give a Pet Promise Certificate instead. This certificate is a promise that you will allow your friend or loved one to choose the pet that best suits his or her lifestyle and you will cover the adoption fees.
Each shelter, rescue group, or individual that posts each animal listing is responsible for updating it. This way, Home Fur Keeps is updated daily by our users.
Yes – Home Fur Keeps sponsors out-of-state adoptions. However, we work with many shelters and rescue organizations that have their own rules. If an animal’s listing that you are interested in is posted by an individual then we will work with our Adoption and Transportation Coordinators for out-of-state adoptions. If the animal you are interested in is posted by a shelter or rescue, please inquire with that organization what their out-of-state adoption policies are.
Each organization has their own adoption policies. If Home Fur Keeps or a private individual successfully adopts out an animal, then we require a $200 adoption fee. This money is put towards vetting the next animal that comes into our care, so you are really saving two lives when you adopt an animal from Home Fur Keeps!
