Adoption Information - Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue
Present the adoptions survey to an adoptions associate and learn information about the animal you have selected to meet with.
If you’ve never adopted a pet before, you may be wondering, how does the work? How does it take? How much does it ? The information below will help give you an overview of how it works to adopt a pet from the two main types of organizations: Shelters and Rescues. Each organization is different, but it helps to understand the two main types and what to expect, so you can have a better overall pet adoption experience.
Thousands of animal shelters, SPCAs, humane societies, and private rescue groups are listed under our feature and they post adoptable pets on our site. Here are even more great places to find pets to adopt and useful information:

The Prince William County Animal Shelter works very hard to find homes for the animals under its care as quickly as possible. Animals are brought into the shelter at an alarming rate and a sudden influx of animals may fill the shelter beyond capacity. All stray animals taken into the Prince William County Animal Shelter have a minimum 5-day period of grace, after which Virginia State law dictates the animal may be euthanized as a means of disposition (those with collars or some sort of identification receive a 10 day waiting period). Surrendered animals (those animals signed over to the shelter by an owner) are evaluated immediately for adoption. If the animal does not pass the behavioral evaluation or has major health issues it could be euthanized. Sadly, not all animals brought to the shelter find homes. Please adopt from the shelter -- it saves lives! The Prince William SPCA is assisting the Prince William County Animal Shelter to place adoptable shelter animals on Petfinder. The PWSPCA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation established to benefit the animals of the greater Prince William County, Virginia, area. This all-volunteer organization is dedicated to protecting domestic animals from cruelty, neglect, and abandonment, and stopping the unnecessary overpopulation of companion animals. PWSPCA's goal is to end the euthanasia of adoptable cats and dogs in Prince William County by promoting and supporting programs involving mutually beneficial relations between people and companion animals. In working with the Prince William County Animal Shelter to place adoptable shelter animals on Petfinder, the PWSPCA hopes to make the greater Prince William region a better place for precious companion animals. For additional information on the PWSPCA, including volunteer opportunities, visit the PWSPCA website at Potential Adopters:May we suggest that your first step to adopting any animal should be the selection of the breed of dog or cat that will best suit you and your family needs. Its always wise to do a little homework first, read books or magazines that give detailed information about the various attributes or deficiencies of the various breeds that are of interest to you.Contact the Prince William County Animal Shelter via the information listed below.

Unfortunately, the Prince William County Animal Shelter is unable to place a "hold" on animals, and adoptions are processed on a first come, first serviced basis.All persons must be 21 years of age or older to adopt a pet. You must bring photo identification and every member of your household needs to be present. In addition, if you plan to adopt a dog and already have a canine family member, you must bring him or her along for a meet and greet. If you rent your home, you must bring a copy of your lease stating that you are permitted to keep pets in your residence. If you own your house, our staff will check county real estate records. If a record cannot be found, we may ask for proof of ownership. Please call our Adoption Department for more information or if you have questions. We do not limit adoptions to any particular geographic area and, in most cases, you can leave with your new best friend the same day you visit us!
