Welcome to our adoption page. Here you will find links to all of the animals available for adoption
through the Mae Bachur Animal Shelter. We at the shelter try very hard to match each one of our animals with a
suitable home. Our staff and volunteers work with all of our animals to make sure that they are happy and
comfortable during their stay. We try to teach all of our dogs basic manners, including housebreaking and basic
training, and try to socialize all of our animals. Please keep in mind that adopting an animal is a lifetime
Please note that we do not put animals on hold for anyone. Adoptions are typically on a first-come basis. If the
animal that you are interested is not available until a later date, applications for that animal will not be
considered until the date of availability. We require 2 personal references with each application. There is a
mandatory 24h waiting period, and the adoption application process typically takes 2-3 days.
Please refer to our cost to adopt page for more information

steps could possibly save another animal from having to suffer for our mistakes.

then returned to the shelter within three weeks after having allegedly nipped one of

"Your candle burned out long before your legend ever will"
Honey will remain in all of our hearts as an example of what happens
when things go terribly wrong.
