Adopting a friend

We appreciate your interest in adopting a homeless companion from Wayside Waifs. We understand that becoming a pet guardian is a big responsibility. Pet companions require space, money, time and energy but with adequate preparation and education becoming a pet guardian can be a wonderful and rewarding experience.

ADOPTION INFORMATION: All Wayside Waifs pets are spayed/neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations prior to adoption. Please note that in order to make the best match possible, potential adopters must come to the Wayside Waifs in person to meet with an adoption counselor and complete the adoption process. All members of the household (including other pets, if possible) should be present to ensure the chosen pet is compatible with everyone. We do not place holds or do adoptions over the phone and we do not ship pets.
