1. Find Your Friend
Find and rescue your new best friend! You can view pets online or visit our shelter in Papillion, NE. The shelter is currently open by appointment only, so please call ahead. We have new pets every week. If you don’t find the right friend for you today, check back again!
Your application will provide us with valuable information that will help us match you with a new friendship that is long and satisfying for you and your family. Please try to be as thorough and accurate as possible so we can process your application in the quickest manner. If you have any questions, please contact us. It usually takes about a week to process an application.
3. Home Visit
After your application has been reviewed, you will be contacted either by our office or a volunteer for a consultation or home visit. Our volunteers will schedule your home visit at a time that is convenient for you. Take advantage of this time to discuss any concerns or questions you may have about welcoming your new pet. Most of our volunteers are knowledgeable in basic behavior, training, diet, medical needs and more. If they cannot answer a question, they will be sure to pass it on to someone who can. Town and Country’s primary goal is to make a match that will last the pet’s lifetime.
When your home visit has been completed and approved, we will schedule a time to finalize your adoption. Adoption appointments occur from 2 to 4 pm (no Wednesdays). Here is a copy of our adoption contract attached for you to review:
If you feel you cannot abide by our contract, we will gladly help you find other rescues that will better fit your needs. Your adoption kit will include the pet’s medical records (spay/neuter, vaccinations, testing, treatments, medications; etc.), a proper collar with a microchip or rabies identification, a leash (dogs), toys, a copy of the contract and a receipt for your donation.
You may not submit an application until you have met the animal unless it is an animal in foster. Please pick ONLY ONE to apply for unless you want to adopt two together. Once you have met your potential pet either at the shelter, an event or have been interviewed by a foster, you will be provided a password to allow you to submit an application. Our hours are by appointment only, 2 to 4 pm (closed Wednesdays).
Note: Animals in foster care require an appointment.
