Adopting A Pet – What You Should Know

Great Lakes Bay Animal Society (GLBAS) rescued dogs and cats are examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, parasite treated/tested, and spay/neutered if medically appropriate, before adoption. However, we cannot guarantee the future health of any of our animals. We try to assess the approximate age and breed of the pet but GLBAS cannot and does not guarantee breed or age of its fosters listed for adoption.

Submitting an application to GLBAS does not obligate you to adopt nor does it guarantee the foster will be adopted by you. GLBAS places the pet in the home that best fits each pet to assure a life-long bond between pet and family, not necessarily to the first applicant.

GLBAS strives to process adoption applications as soon as possible. It may take up to five (5) days to fully process your application. GLBAS consists completely of volunteers and, as such, can not always reply immediately.

Adopters of pets that are NOT already spay/neutered due to young age must sign a Spay/Neuter Agreement and pay a fee that will be refunded when proof of the veterinary spay/neuter is returned to GLBAS in accordance with the agreement.

Final decisions on adoptions are made based on GLBAS policy, interviews, and home visits.
