HOW DOES THE ADOPTION PROCESS WORK?
Our goal is to match the right animal with the right adopters. To ensure the best match is made, we have established a process that is fair and accurate in determining the best home.
Our organization is completely run by unpaid volunteers, many with full time jobs, who donate their free time to helping FFRR succeed. The entire process can be smooth, rather than complicated, if all parts of the application are thoroughly filled out.
We do have paper copies available if needed. Please send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org. We thank you in advance for your time and patience throughout our adoption process.

Our rescue is operated by all unpaid volunteers. It may take three hours or three days to complete the application process, depending on volunteer availability. An approved application means that the applicant is approved to adopt an animal from our rescue, it is not a guarantee that the applicant will be allowed to adopt the animal specified on the application. We often receive many applications for the same pet, so please don’t be disappointed if your application is approved but another approved applicant is selected to adopt the animal. We strive to do our best, and always take the best interest of the animal into consideration.
