Adoption Policy

Our adoptions are restricted to residences of the Los Angeles, CA area. We do not ship animals nor do we do any type of long distance adoptions. We do not adopt to persons under 21 years of age. We require prospective adopters to meet both us and the animal, fill out an application and be interviewed. If the application is approved we may also require home check so we can ensure the animals safety. Adoptions are not done a first come first serve basis, applicants are selected which best match the pet's temperament and needs. These pets are not for sale and the decision of where to place them is solely the responsibility of Noah's Bark. We reserve the right to refuse placement of our pets to any individual who does not meet our criteria. We also reserve the right to keep our reasons for refusal confidential within our organization. The welfare of our rescue animals is our top priority.

There is a required tax deductible adoption fee of $350 for dogs, $400 for puppies (some purebreds maybe adopted at a higher fee. Seniors and special needs pets maybe adopted at a reduced fee). The adoption fee must be paid via check or cash, we do not accept credit cards. The adoption fee is used to help offset some of the cost needed to operate our rescue organization. The adoption fee includes a vet visit, all vaccinations (excluding rabies), deworming, spay or neuter and blood work at the time of surgery. Once an application is approved an adoption contract will be filled out and signed to finalize an adoption through Noah’s Bark.

PLEASE NOTE: Filling out an application DOES NOT guarantee an adoption. We have thoroughly evaluated all of the animals in our care, and try very hard to match the right pet to the right person and situation. We reserve the right not to adopt.
