Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our animals! This form is the first step you need to take to meet an animal in its foster home or to adopt an animal you have already met.

Please review our adoption information page if you have not already done so.

Please click here to show/hide detailed instructions.
We are an all-volunteer organization, so please be patient – you will be contacted within a few days.  If you are having difficulties, please save your progress and contact us via info@animalrescue.net.

The information in this form will only be used for the processing of this application and can only be seen by the adoption team and foster parent(s) of the animal you are applying for. Thank you again!

NOTE: Please be aware that Independent Animal Rescue is an organization of volunteer foster homes, located primarily in the Durham/Chapel Hill area of North Carolina. Due to the nature of our adoption process, we can only consider applications for homes located within 60 miles of Durham. Thank-you!
