Kingdom Kritters Rescue & Sanctuary

      Policies and Procedures for Adopting from Kingdom Kritters

 Kingdom Kritters does not operate like your local shelters.  Therefore, you can't expect for this process to go quickly.  The goal at Kingdom Kritters is not simply to place animals in homes.  Rather, the goal is to ensure that no animal that passes through Kingdom Kritters ever re-enters the rescue system.  We are seeking FOREVER homes, and that means that we must be very diligent in our screening and education processes.  This means that I will take time to get to know you and will look in to all of the things I believe to be important for the care and keeping of the animal you wish to adopt.  Ultimately, I am responsible for each life that passes through Kingdom Kritters and I do not take that lightly nor will I let an animal go to a new home until I am comfortable that their life will be improved by leaving mine and going to yours.
