The Adoption Process

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.

Effective December 31, 2021 we will be open for adoptions by appointment only. We will not be able to accommodate walk-in visitors for adoptions until further notice. Please read the following information carefully and contact us at reception@parl.org with any questions.

interested in adopting a dog, cat, or small animal? we can help!

  • Photos and bios for all available animals are posted on our website. Follow the links below to see available dogs, cats, and small animals.
  • Please complete an Adopter Profile online. This form asks for basic information and helps us make a successful adoption match.
  • Our adoption team will review your profile and will contact you to set up an appointment as animals that might be a good match for you are available. Please understand that we are short-staffed due to the current state of the pandemic. Our team is working hard to place animals into loving homes in a timely manner during this challenging time. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
  • Please note that masks are required for all appointments, regardless of vaccination status. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
