After years of experience, we have figured out the quickest, most efficient, and best way to handle adoptions and to help ensure you and the pet are a good match. All of our animals come from rescue situations, and we strive to do our best to make sure the new adoptive home will be the pet’s final forever home. Therefore, we enforce each of the following policies for you and your potential pet:

  • We are unable to consider any home without the potential adopter FIRST completing an application. This in no way obligates you to adopt. Completed applications are mandatory.
  • We are happy to consider out of state adoptions. In fact, we have found these to be some of our best homes. Please note, however, that we do not ship animals. You will be required to travel here to meet and pick up your pet.
  • We are unable to hold animals while you vacation. Please visit our website when you return to see if the pet you are interested in is still available.
  • All pets will be spayed or neutered, and microchipped prior to adoption.

Once your application has been received, it is forwarded to the foster parent, and you can expect to be contacted within 48 hours. If you are interested in attending and possibly adopting at one of our twice monthly Petsmart Adoption Days (1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month, from 10 am to 2 pm), it is strongly advised that you submit your application at least 24 hours prior to the event. Please keep in mind that we are an all volunteer rescue and that many of our pets receive multiple inquiries. We will do our best to work quickly to evaluate your application and get in touch with you as soon as possible. Most applicants will be contacted within 24 hours so please be patient.

Got a Success Story?

Have you adopted a pet from LNAR? If so, we want to hear from you! We love publishing success stories of pets that we have helped to place in loving homes. None of our volunteers receives a monetary paycheck; rather, our paycheck comes in the form of seeing and hearing about our rescued pets in their new homes. If you have adopted from us and would like your new best friend’s story posted on our site, please e-mail us a current photo and your story with an update. Submission of your photo(s) and story grants LNAR permission to post your pet’s and family’s photos on our site. If you would like to contribute to our mission to transform unwanted shelter animals into loving pets, you can donate here.
