Adoption Requirements

Journey Home Animal Rescue

Thank you for your interest in adopting from Journey Home Animal Rescue. Our goal is to adopt pets into forever loving homes to responsible adults. We have specific adoption requirements that must be met to be approved to adopt through our organization. These requirements are in place to set both families and pets up for success. 


Our adoption requirements are mandatory and non-negotiable.

Please only apply once you meet the requirements.

Requirements to Adopt

  1. All applicants must be over the age of 18 years old.

  2. All pets residing in the home MUST be current on vaccinations and spayed/neutered, unless veterinarian recommended otherwise. (Please double check vaccination status before applying). This includes pets belonging to roommates or other household members.

  3. All adopted pets are adopted to be indoor family pets, with the exception of evaluated barn cats. 

  4. If you do not personally own your home, ensure with your landlord or the home owner that you are allowed to have a pet.

  5. All adopters must agree to either attend training classes with their adopted pet or do at home training within 8 months of adoption. (dogs only)

  6. All adopters must seek professional help for behavior or medical concerns if/when needed.
