  2. Provide some general answers to questions regarding their ability to care for the animal
  3. Acquire a license (for dogs only)
  4. Pay an adoption fee

The City reserves the right to refuse adoption to any family where staff do not believe that there is an appropriate fit between the family and the animal.
