East Lake Pet
Orphanage Admittance Form
out an application does not insure your animal of a place in our orphanage.
To have an animal considered for admission into our adoption program,
fill out the form below. Please keep in mind that there are
simply more animals in need than what we can accommodate and the animal
should not considered to be on a "waiting list". It is critical
that you continue to look into other alternatives during the time
frame that an admission application is on file with us. Due to the
high number of animals in need of assistance, admittance applications
are automatically discarded 30 days after the submission date. Though
we attempt to admit animals in the order that the applications are
submitted, we must consider size, breed, sex, age, health, and disposition
of each animal in an attempt to have a variety of animals available
at any given time. This helps us to place animals in a more expedient
manner. We invite you to e-mail a picture of the animal you are trying
to place to firstname.lastname@example.org
with "admittance application photo" as the subject line of your e-mail.
Remember to include the name of the pet in the text of your e-mail
so that we can quickly identify which picture goes with your admittance
As a no-kill, limited admittance facility, we typically operate at
full capacity. Our Lost and Found
Resources will include ways to find other shelters and rescues
in the area as well as ideas on how you can place the animal yourself.
There are several different types of rescues and shelters, and it
is up to you to research these to determine which will be the best
for your individual needs. You may also submit a picture and
brief description for the East Lake Pet Orphanage bulletin board located
in our facility at no charge, and/or this information may also be
placed on our web site for one month with a $20 donation to the orphanage
(this donation is separate from the donation that we request at the
time of admission).
If an opening becomes available for your animal within the 30 day
period, we will contact you to set up a time/date for you to bring
the animal in. If the animal you are needing to place is a personal
pet, we will request an additional form be filled out at the time
of admission to help us get more specific information about the type
of environment that your pet is used to (this will help us in our
search for most suitable home), as well as a copy of past medical
I wish for the following pet to be admitted for adoption (name)

Why are you trying to place this animal in a new home?
The cost of medical care and boarding for an adoptee can run from
$100 to $400 or higher. To help defray these costs, I will
upon acceptance of this animal to the adoption program.
Surrendering an animal should be a last resort and a decision that
has been thought out very carefully. If this pet is accepted, I understand
that I will no longer have any legal claim to it. ALL ADMISSIONS ARE
FINAL and the animal cannot be reclaimed at a later date. I understand
that while animals admitted together are attempted to be placed in
the same home, that East Lake Pet Orphanage does not make any guarantees
that they will be able to be adopted out together. I am aware that
this animal may be humanely euthanized if it is determined to be aggressive
or if it has any serious health issues that will diminish its quality
of life even with treatment.
