Adoption Process


Find A Pet You'd Like To Meet With:

The first step to adopt from Judy's Forgotten Jewells is to find the pet you'd like to meet with! 

 We list our pets on many platforms, but the main ones are PetFinder, Adopt-A-Pet, and Facebook.

Book An Appointment

The next step to adopt from Judy's Forgotten Jewells is to reach out and book an appointment with our Adoption Team. We adopt by scheduled and confirmed appointments only. We do adopt on a first come, first serve basis, so it us important to try to get in as soon as you're available. Puppies and kittens get adopted very quickly.  We may ask you if you have a second choice when scheduling your appointment.

Meet With The Pet Of Your Choice

The next (and best) step is to meet with the pet of your choice here at our shelter!  

Fill Out An Adoption Application

We ask everyone that comes to meet with our pets to fill out an application.  For questions about our application, reach out to our adoption team.

Have Your Application Processed

Your application will be processed by our Adoption Team. We look very closely at our applicants, and reserve the right to deny any application that we feel is not in the pets best interest. 

For information on why an application would be denied, reach out to our Adoption Team:

Take Your New Pet Home!

We do offer same day adoption, with an approved application. So, as long  as everything works out, you could take your new pet home that day! We do offer options to reserve your pet and pick them up at a later date. The limit on this is around two weeks.
