The Adoption Process

When you fall in love with one of our animals, and decide you would like to adopt, there are a few things you need to do to get the process moving.

  • Fill out an adoption application.

  • Sign an adoption contract.

  • Adopters must be approved before meeting the dog, which would include a vet reference check if adopting out of state.

  •  A home visit may be required.

  • Best Friends Animal Rescue will also be in contact with you by phone.

  • Our animals are already spayed or neutered if they are old enough. If not you must sign a spay/neuter contract as well.


We know this seems like a lot of paperwork, but just remember that our focus is the well-being of our rescued animals and seeing that they are matched up with the perfect family, so they can finally have that forever home.

Links to all contracts are below. Print them off and fill out, scan and e-mail them back to us at

      Adoption Fees are subject to 6% Kentucky State Sales Tax.
