About Adopting

Learn about the process of adding a new pet to your family

Adopting a new pet isn't easy. There are many factors to consider, especially if you've never had a pet before. Do you have the time, money, patience, and energy required to provide for a pet? Asking yourself those questions is only the first step of the adoption process.

At Helping Strays we understand how intimidating the whole process can be, from deciding to adopt to adjusting your lifestyle for your new pet. Our goal is to match the right pet with your family. To that end, we're here to help you along every step of the way.

This section of our site will help you gather the information you need and give you a feel for the adoption process. While you'll still have much to learn, you'll have a sense of the size and nature of the adoption process, and you'll know what questions to ask. If you have a question you can't find answered here, contact us. We're more than happy to help!
