Pet Adoption Application

Thank you for your interest in adopting a pet from North Star Rescue. Please be aware that you must be over 18 to adopt a pet from North Star Rescue, while we do adopt pets to families with children we require that an adult be ultimately responsible for the care of the adopted pet. You may also fill out a printed adoption application in person at any one of our public adoption outposts or monthly adoption events.

Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required fields.
