"Adoption is the best option"

Adoption Process

Thank you for considering to adopt your new dog or cat from our organization. Please read this section carefully, as it explains our adoption policies and procedures in detail. It is intended to assist you in selecting an animal that is suitable for you, your family and your lifestyle. Friends of the Plymouth Pound have established guidelines and set standards to ensure that the animals in our adoption program are placed into their "Forever Homes."

The first step in the process it to complete an adoption application. This can be done in 2 ways. On-line, by clicking the Cat or Dog Adoption Form tab, or in person at our adoption center located at the Kingston Mall
. Applications are processed in the order in which they are received You must be at least 21 yrs. of age to adopt and animal from our organization. If visiting our cat adoption center with young children, please do not lead them  to believe they will be leaving with a pet, as our adoption process can take up to 14 days to complete.  
All applicable information on the application MUST be completed. Incomplete or missing information may cause a delay in processing or non-approval of an application. Please note that as part of our review process, ALL references will be contacted. In some instances, a pre-adoption home visit may also be conducted. If you currently own a pet/s they must be up to date with all appropriate vaccinations before FPP will consider placing an animal in your home. We recommend that you contact your vets office to inform them that you may be adopting a new pet and that Friends of the Plymouth Pound will be calling for a vet reference. Many vets will not disclose personal medical information about their clients without your consent.

Once your application has been reviewed, you will be contacted by an FPP Representative to schedule a meet and greet with the animal you are interested in adopting if you are approved. We are an all volunteer organization, and due to the high volume of applications we receive, ONLY those who have been approved to adopt will be contacted. If you have not heard from an FPP Rep within 14 days of submitting your application, you can assume you have not been approved to adopt. Friends of the Plymouth Pound does not adopt any animal from their adoption program to out of state adopters. Please note that we do not adopt to families with children under the age of 7 years of age due to liability reason.

Cats and dogs for adoption can be viewed on our website by clicking the "Awaiting Adoption" tab. Cats can also be seen by viewing them safely from our display windows at our adoption center location during open hours.  Please note: that FPP requires a fenced in yard for any home wishing to adopt a dog.

Adoption Fees:        Dog    $350        Cat    $150

All animals adopted by FPP have been examined by a licensed veterinarian, received all age appropriate vaccinations, spayed or neutered, tested for heart-worm (dogs) or combo tested for feline aid/leukemia (cats), given monthly flea/tick and heart-worm preventatives, and have been micro-chipped. Please note: Friends of the Plymouth Pound does not adopt dogs to families with young children under the age of 7.

Friends of the Plymouth Pound return policy: Once you have adopted an animal; if for any reason whatsoever, you are no longer willing or able to care for the animal you adopted, 
the animal MUST BE RETURNED to Friends of the Plymouth Pound.
