Adoption Day Process

  1. Come to one of the above locations during our adoption hours with an animal carrier and find our volunteers.
                We do not allow an animal to leave Petco without a carrier.  
                There are carriers to purchase at Petco if you do not already own one.  
                We will not provide a carrier to you.

  2. Fill out and sign the official Heaven Can Wait Adoption Application

  3. Pay the HCW volunteer the adoption fee.

  4. Fill out Petco Form.
      This is required to take a live animal out of the store and helps HCW get grant money.

  5. Go through the checkout to process the Petco Form.

  6. Take your Adoption Photo with your new adopted pet.

  7. Take your new fur-baby home with you
