Update: LYR is CLOSED to intake. We are not taking in any animals until further notice. 

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
