EAHS attempts to work with everyone who is interested in adopting an animal and giving it a new forever home, however EAHS does reserve the right to refuse an adoption application for reasons including, but not limited to: false information is given, background checks cannot be verified, current identification and address cannot be verified or if the adoption is not in the best interest of the animal and the adopter.
SENIOR ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS:
Whether interested in a senior pet or a young adult, all of our senior adoptees are strongly encouraged to arrange a provision in the event that they become unable to care for their pet. This can include designating a caregiver, setting up a trust, or including pets in a will. Many of our pets came to us when their owners unexpectedly passed away without having made provisions for that pet. Our goal is to provide people with loving companions, and our pets with a home they can live their rest of their lives in.
The average lifespan in the United States is 80 years old. While it is true that many people live into their 90s and sometimes beyond, the majority will not, meaning young puppies and kittens are likely to outlive their owners. Sadly, often relatives are not willing to take on a 10+ year commitment with the deceased’s pet, and that pet is surrendered to a shelter.
In accordance with these reasons, we have outlined the following guidelines:
Seniors aged 70+ must provide proof that they have made arrangements for the care of the pet they are interested in (trust, adult child, etc.). If the pet will be entrusted to an adult family member, they must meet our requirements for adoption. Seniors 70+, regardless of arrangements, are approved to adopt senior pets (aged 5+). While we encourage all seniors to adopt older pets, this only applies to adoptees over 70 years of age.

**MOBILE USERS PLEASE SCROLL DOWN AND TO THE RIGHT TO SEE DOGS**
The Official Law, Alabama House Bill 252, provides that all dogs and cats acquired from an animal facility and not sterile at the time of acquisition be sterilized by a licensed veterinarian. The adopter has 30 days to have the sterilization done, or within 30 days of the sexual maturity of the said animal. Failing or refusing to comply with this Code is a misdemeanor and any person convicted of such misdemeanor is subject to a fine of up to $200.00 and court cost.
