Adoption Refusal
An animal control officer may refuse an adoption if there is reason to believe that a prospective owner:
  • Would not have proper facilities to contain or care for the animal
  • Wants the dog or cat for the purpose of resale or for purposes other than pet ownership
  • Would subject the animal to abandonment or cruelty
