Adoption Guidelines

Before you adopt ...

There are plenty of things we ask you to consider first, for one simple reason – we want to find permanent and loving homes for the animals we receive.  Please seriously consider the following:

  • How many hours will you be home each day to spend with your pet?
  • Where will your pet be when you are not at home?
  • Do you have the time and energy to exercise/train your pet daily?
  • What level of energy are you willing to work & live with from your pet?
  • Will you be able to afford ongoing vet care, training classes, food, etc.?
  • Are you ready to commit to keeping the animal for the rest of their life?
  • Expect a dog to live 10-15 years and a cat 15-20 years.​​

Adopter requirements:

  • Be a minimum of 18 years of age with verifiable identification
  • Have approval from everyone in household​
  • Provide proof of home ownership (if asked) or landlord information
  • All currently owned pets must be spayed/neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations​​​​​​​​​​​​ ​
  • Be adopting for themselves and not for a second party​
  • ​​​Understand HSBC has a right to deny your application
  • Agree to all terms of the adoption contract.

General background checks and vet checks (when applicable) will be completed on all applicants.

***HSBC does NOT condone declawing of our cats. Every adopter is required to sign an ‘no-declaw’ agreement that is legally binding upon adoption of a cat.  However, HSBC does rescue and adopt out cats who have already been declawed. ​ For more information about declawing please visit: https://www.humanesociety.org/resources/declawing-cats-far-worse-manicure
