NOTE: After you fill out the "Spam" box and hit "Submit", you should be taken to a webpage that thanks you for your application and gives you further instructions.  If you are not taken to this webpage, your application is incomplete and has not gone through properly. Please keep trying!

Please fill out an online application only if you are interested in a animal that is currently listed in our available pets section.  Be sure to fill in all information as applications with complete information will be processed first. 

VPC is run completely by volunteers, many of which work full time during the day. It is sometimes difficult to process applications the same day they are received.  We often receive numerous applications for one animal we have available for adoption.  If you do not hear from us within a few days it is because another applicant was approved for the animal(s) you are interested in or your application has not been approved.
