Adoption Process

ARPO does not have a shelter or physical location.  All pets are in foster care.  Potential adopters must fill out the Adoption Application.  An phone or e-mail interview and home visit are required and does not guarantee adoption. We use these as a tool to make a match for both the adoptive family and the pet.  Because home visits are done by a member of our all volunteer staff, we limit this to a 50 mile radius of Indianapolis. Lastly, before taking your new companion, a contract must be signed, including the provision that the adopter will provide quality food, shelter, and medical care.

You may follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/adoptarpo/ to find out when and where our next adoption events, fundraisers, success stories, as well as hints and tips in pet care.

Commitment

Acquiring a new companion animal is a big responsibility, and a commitment for the lifetime of the animal. If you are not prepared to care for your companion through both the good and the bad times, please reconsider acquiring a pet. Pets take time, effort, and patience, and will reward you 1000 times over. If you are ready for a lifetime of love and furry hugs, please contact us!
