Adoptions

The Michigan Animal Rescue League adopts out around 1,200 animals every year. We work hard to ensure that every animal gets matched with a home that’s just right for them, and that these matches are built to last a lifetime.

Interested in adopting from MARL? Here’s what our process looks like:

Adopters must be 21 years or older and have a valid driver’s license with current address to fill out an application.

Please Note:

  • Some animals may have special adoption requirements.
  • It can take up to 5 days to review an adoption application.
  • We are unable to hold animals.
  • Multiple applications are taken on each animal. Placement decisions are based on the best interest of each individual animal and their individual needs.
  • Filling out an application does not guarantee adoption.
