PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING A PUPPY OR KITTEN LESS THAN 6 MONTHS OF AGE FROM TAPS NO-KILL ANIMAL SHELTER
With the onset of puppy and kitten season, at times, we have multiple puppies and kittens looking for a home. We receive hundreds of applications on our puppies and kittens. In an effort to move them into adoptive homes in a more efficient manner and streamline the application process, we will be approving puppy and kitten applications in the order received. Approved applicants will be called in to meet with any available puppies or kittens to determine if there is anyone available that might be a good fit for your family. We will no longer be accepting applications for specific puppies or kittens. Additionally, we will not hold a specific puppy or kitten for an applicant. If you submit an online application with a specific puppy or kitten listed, you will be placed on the general puppy or kitten list and your application will be processed in the order received.
The process to adopt our adult cats and dogs remain the same. You may apply for one of our wonderful adult animals by name and we will process those applications as received.
Our policy is to process applications in the order that they are received for in-shelter animals. Our small dogs, puppies and kittens are extremely popular. If you see an animal you are interested in, we encourage you to submit a no-obligation application to be listed for consideration. Applications for pets placed in foster homes are at the discretion of the foster home. They have welcomed our animals into their homes while they are awaiting adoption and understand the special needs of the animal they are fostering.
We receive multiple e-mail inquiries daily. We do our best to respond to each e-mail within 48-72 hours. To receive the most accurate and up-to-date information on an animal and any pending applications, we recommend calling or visiting the shelter during business hours.
