PARL seeks to create a welcoming and barrier-free adoption process that is entirely conversation-based. We believe in building and strengthening the human-companion animal bond and through conversation, we seek to find the best match for both adopter and animal. Through this process, we build trusting relationships with adopters, encouraging them to communicate openly and honestly with us if they should need our advice or assistance.
If you see an animal you'd like to meet and potentially adopt, please plan to visit our shelter during our open adoption hours and complete an Adopter Profile online before visiting. The Adopter Profile asks for basic information and helps us match you with small animals whenever you visit.
EFFECTIVE JULY 27, 2022: We have all felt the impact of national supply shortages and rising costs associated with food, medicine, energy, transportation, and labor. As a result, our adoption fees will be increasing, effective July 27, 2022. We strive to find the balance between ensuring that pet adoption is affordable for all, finding loving homes for animals, and recovering a portion of the cost for shelter, care, and treatment that our organization spends per animal. We are committed to revisiting our adoption fees on a regular basis and will make adjustments as we are able to do so. Please note that adoption fees for select animals or animal types may be reduced at any time due to the animal's needs and length of stay with our organization. Notice of reduced adoption fee will appear in the individual animal's bio. Thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.
