Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees vary for each animal. Fees will depend on the cost of the overall vetting and any special needed vetting per animal.

  • There is an adoption application that must be filled out and submitted. We ask for vet references and two personal references.
  • We also ask to do a home check, if the potential adopter lives out of state we will find a rescue in their area who will do the home check for us.
  • You will be asked to sign an adoption agreement upon adopting any animal from our rescue.
  • All incoming rescues will now be micro chipped starting in June 2016.
  • All rescues will have a spay/neuter contract or be spayed or neutered before leaving LYR.
  • All owner surrenders must fill out and sign an Owner Surrender Form: Owner Surrender Form
