How This Program Works
Most of the cats and dogs we have in our Adoption Program were found homeless in our St. Croix communities. It is fortunate that these pets have found a kind human that has taken the care and concern to bring them to PAWS attention.
We do not have a shelter building. Our homeless cats and dogs are placed in loving temporary homes for safe shelter, care, rehabilitation, and love until a permanent home is found.
All PAWS pets are healthy, vaccinated, heartworm tested, FeLeuk negative, and spayed or neutered before they are ready for our Adoption Program.
The first step in the adoption procedure is to complete an adoption application. You can either submit an online application or you can print and mail a copy. Please make sure you fill in the application completely. We are unable to process incomplete applications.
After you submit your application it will take a few days for a to review your application and check your references. We will determine if you and the animal you are interested in is the best match. Applications are not approved on a first come, first served basis. We match up the best home for the animal, so if there are more than one application for a pet, we reserve the right to determine which home is most suited for that animal.
Upon approval of your application we will contact you to set up a time for you to meet the cat or dog you're interested in.
