How Do I

Adopt a Pet?

  • How do I adopt from Moe Moe′s?

    Moe Moe’s is a foster-based rescue. We do not have a shelter facility where applicants can come look at multiple animals at one time. All of our animals are in foster homes, where they are loved and cared for until they are placed in a forever home.

    The adoption process begins when you complete an Adoption Application, naming either one or a few of our Available Animals or providing a description of the type of animal you hope to adopt. Completing an application does not restrict you to a specific animal, nor does it obligate you to adopt.

    Once we have received your application and determined that you are a good match for the requested animal, we will contact you for an interview. The foster parent will then contact you to arrange a time for you to meet the animal, at which time the decision will be made if the animal is a good fit for your family and your family a good fit for the animal. You may be asked to visit the animal more than once before taking it home. After that, a home visit will be performed.

    Once the adoption is approved, you will need to complete an Adoption Contract and pay the adoption fee.  If at any time after adoption, you decide you cannot keep the pet for any reason, the animal must be returned to Moe Moe’s.


  • We are in this for the animals

    Our job is to find each of out animals the right home. Rejected applications are not necessarily a reflection on the applicant’s home, but rather based on the determination that the home is not the right match. Before adopting, keep in mind that many of our animals have never lived inside a home. Some dogs may never have been walked on a leash, socialized, house trained or spent time with other animals. All, even those who previously have been in loving homes, will need patience and understanding as they learn to adapt to a new life and family. Rescued animals need adopters who will not give up on them if they have accidents in the house, pull on the leash, dig in the yard or act nervous or frightened.

    Because of the work done in our foster homes and the care we take in matching animals with the right home, most of our animals will fit in their new homes immediately. But some will not. Many will need some form of training.

    An adoption will be successful only if the adopter is committed to seeing the animal through the adjustment period. The rewards are the unconditional love and loyalty of a wonderful companion and the satisfaction of knowing you have given a rescued animal a better life. Moe Moe’s wants to support you with resources, education, and encouragement for the lifetime of your pet. Please contact us at any time following adoption for assistance. We will always be here for you!
