After reviewing and evaluating your application, an adoption counselor helps you determine if the animal you selected fits you and your lifestyle and household. Once a match is agreed upon, the village's representative sets a convenient schedule for you and your family to visit and get to know the animal inside the acquaintance room. The village also counsels you about transitioning your pet from the Rescue Village to your home.

The Rescue Village often requires a pet-to-pet visit if the potential adopter already cares for other animals at home. A pet meetup may be scheduled after you have submitted a profile and have met an adoption counselor. This process ensures that both pets get along well under your care.

After you have made up your mind to adopt a pet from Rescue Village, you need to pay the adoption fee. The Rescue Village processes all the paperwork and gives you a copy of the adoption agreement and the animal's medical records. The Rescue Village also gives you a coupon for a free veterinary checkup in a participating vet within the next three weeks.
