Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to the most frequently asked questions!

  • 01

    How does the adoption process work?

    The first step is to fill out the adoption application and pay the adoption fees (You may also adopt at our adotion events without prepaying). Once approved, you will be able to select from the available labs or wait until the right lab comes along. There is a 2 week trial period in which you can decide if the lab you selected is a good match or not. Please see the How To Adopt page for more detailed information.
