Adoption Process

The goal of our adoption program is to match our animals with loving, responsible, lifelong homes. Please take a moment to read about our adoption policies below and learn how the adoption process works.  If you have any questions about the adoption process, please feel free to call us at 802-484-5829.
As a prospective adopter, we ask that you first come to the shelter to meet our adoptable animals. We’re always happy and ready to help you decide which animal would be a good match for you. Once you’ve decided on an animal you’d like to adopt, we will ask you to complete an adoption application. Adopters must be at least 21
years of age. 
It can take, at minimum, two days for us to process your application and verify your information. As part of the application process, we will ask that all members of the
household come to the shelter. If you are applying to adopt a dog and you currently have a dog at home, we will discuss scheduling a staff-assisted meet and greet. When all steps of the application are complete, we will discuss with you the details of taking your new pet home.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Does the Adoption Fee Cover?
Each adoptable animal at Lucy Mackenzie has been vaccinated, health-checked, de-wormed, de-fleaed, microchipped, and spayed/neutered prior to placement. Pets who are four months of age or older receive a rabies vaccine. All dogs receive a DHLPP vaccine and are heartworm-tested at five months of age or older. All cats are tested for FeLv and cats 6 months of age and older are tested for FIV.

It is very important that your current pets are up to date on vaccinations and heartworm preventative.
