DART is very concerned for the safety of any animal we adopt so yes, we are picky! We hope you understand, so before you fill out our adoption application, please ensure you meet the following requirements:

We require that you:

  • That your pet continues to receive vaccinations and other medical care as recommended by your veterinarian

  • Maintain your cat inside the house

In order to apply you must:

  • Be 21 years of age or older.

  • If renting, have paid any additional security fees and you must be willing to pay any additional rent. 

  • Have the proper set up in your home to maintain and contain your pet before you get your pet. We will do house visits before and after your adoption. 

  • Understand that you cannot adopt an animal to give to someone else. You can however let us know of your intention and we can work with you on this, but the same requirements will apply to the person who will receive the pet as a gift including house visits prior and after adoption. 

  • Return the pet to us in case the adoption does not work out. 

It's a lot, we know but remember getting a pet is a lifetime commitment and we are here to help you every step of the way. If you are ready, please fill out our application and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. We look forward to meeting you!
