I've found a pet I want to adopt - what's next?
Once you find a pet you are interested in adopting, you’ll need to contact the rescue group, shelter or pound caring for the pet to find out more. The contact details and adoption information can be found at the bottom of the pet profile, or by clicking the ‘find out more about this pet’ button found above the profile picture.
PetRescue supports hundreds of independent rescue organisations, shelters and pounds, and each set their own adoption processes and adoption fees, so you will need to contact them directly for specific information regarding the pet you are interested in.
Usually the process will consist of a chat with the group to see if the pet is potentially a good match, organising a meet and greet with the pet and then completing an application form.

Good luck with the search for your new furry family member!
