Frequently Asked Questions
Adopting any animal is a big commitment and shouldn’t be taken lightly. You need to make sure you can afford to take care of your new pet and it’s important to consider what kind of pet is right for you and your family. Below are several questions and answers that might help you explore the possibility of pet adoption.
What are the pros and cons of adopting a pet?
PROS: You are truly saving a life! Multiple ages are available and mixed breeds tend to be healthier. Older pets are often a better fit for your lifestyle instead of a puppy. Adoption fees are minimal when compared to breeder fees. All cats and dogs at Noah Project are immunized, micro-chipped, fixed, and loved!
CONS: Unknown history. Unknown breed and related behavioral and/or health concerns.
What questions should I be asking myself before I consider adoption?
Whether it’s your first time adopting a pet or you’re on the fence about rescuing a four-legged friend, these are the questions you should ask yourself first:
What breed or type of cat/dog is right for me?
Can I afford to adopt this animal and care for this pet?
Do I have the time and ability to care for this pet?
Is my home suitable for a pet?
Do I have other pets that will accept another four-legged member of the family?
How long will the adoption process take?
It can take up to 3 to 5 days to process an application.
How can I learn about a pet's back story and whether there are behavioral issues and/or medical history?
When meeting the pet you can ask questions about their past and any behavioral issues or special needs.
Can I spend one-on-one time with a pet before adopting?
Once you have chosen the dog or cat you are interested in, you can set up a time to come meet with them and spend time with them. We usually limit visits to 20 minutes per visit.
