Adoption Application

We appreciate your interest in a Footbridge Foundation adoptable pet. Adoption donation for cats is $100 and dogs $250 - $350 depending on medical costs. Keep in mind that adoption donations do not cover the cost to prepare an adoptable pet for adoption, in most cases much more is spent. We rely on fundraising to make up the difference and welcome donations.

Once we receive your application we will review it and then contact you for a meet and greet. Adoptions are not finalized until an adoption contract is signed. Feel free to email us to follow up if you would like at: info@footbridgefoundation.org

Our adoptable pets are cared for with love until placed in their forever home. Each animal is spayed/neutered, microchipped, heart worm tested & treated if necessary for dogs, snap tested for FIV & Feline Leukemia for cats, vaccinated as per their age, tested & treated as needed for internal & external parasites and current on flea & heart worm preventative. Medical records will be provided upon finalizing your pets' adoption, you will need a tag with your phone number and a collar and leash for dogs/carrier for cats at this time. You are expected to keep your new pet on flea and heart worm preventatives as well as complete any outstanding necessary vaccinations.
