Our adoption procedure is simple and designed to match the right animal with the right home. Our adoption form is available online and downloadable. You may return the application by email, fax or bring it with you when you visit the Rescue.

Our "guest list" changes almost daily, so please feel free to stop by and meet our new arrivals or check them out on our "Adoptable Pets" page. If you are interested in a specific age, breed, or type of animal, please ask our staff to add your name to our list. We will call if an animal that matches your criteria arrives at the Rescue providing your application has been approved.

Our facility features a special bonding room where you and your family can spend some quality time alone with our animals before deciding which one to adopt. If you already have pets, this is an excellent opportunity to see if they are compatible with the one you are considering adopting.

At Toledo Animal Rescue, we strive to find good matches between people and pets. Please note that Toledo Animal Rescue chooses the best appropriate adopter in the best interest of the animal, in some cases this does not mean the first application. In order to have a 'hold' on a dog or cat at Toledo Animal Rescue, the adopter must have an approved application. Toledo Animal Rescue reserves the right to refuse an adoption at any time.
