Please note that we are experiencing an EXTREMELY high volume of applications and inquiries at this time and our Adoptions Team is working hard to ensure each and every one of the applications is responded to. We ask that you please keep an eye on your junk/spam folder for a response as it has often been re-directed there. Once your initial email is received, it’s important that we receive a response from you within 24 hours or we will have to move on to the next applicant.

During this time, we kindly ask for your patience and understanding that response times might be delayed. We strive to contact each applicant within 48 – 72 hours but please allow some extra time during this busy period.
