Step 1. Fill out an application
We ask all potential adopters to fill out an application. Every pet has specific needs and we want to make sure you find your perfect pet and our pets find the perfect home.
New! Online Application
You may drop off your application at our Sunday adoption event or email it to adopt (at) espnova (dot) org. Keep in mind we strongly consider the order the applications are received but overall we go by best fit.
Highly adoptable puppies, dogs and cats are available in Virginia only. Overlooked dogs and cats are available to out of state homes.
|Please understand that if any of the following apply we will not follow through with the adoption of one of our animals
Step 2: Pass a home check
If your application is approved you will be subject to a home check. We want to make sure every pet has a safe environment to live in.
Step 3: Pay the adoption fee
Before your new rescue animal goes home we ask that you pay the adoption fee.
Adult Dogs – $250
Puppies – $350
Please understand that we operate purely on donations so to help us continue to rescue more animals and recoup from the expenses we put into your pet we ask for this. At any given time we on average have $1500 worth of vet bills that need to be paid off, please don’t ask for a discount.
