We love to spoil our adopters! At the point of adoption, adopters receive an adoption package full of goodies:
Posting your on PawsLikeMe is free. However an adoption fee will be charged to the adopter. It’s important that an adoption fee is collected prior to an in-person meeting to ensure your safety and the safety of your pet. The adoption fee is only finalized once adoption is approved by you.
PawsLikeMe donates up to half of each adoption fee collected to rescues and shelters across the nation in support of animal welfare. Your choice of selecting a PawsLikeMe adoption goes a long way to help reduce the euthanasia rates across the country.
In the unusual event that an adopter asks to return a pet, PawsLikeMe will first verify whether the previous owner is willing to foster the pet until a new home is found. The previous owner is not required to take the pet back, even temporarily. PawsLikeMe will work with the adoptive family to help find a new home for the pet using our rehoming service.
PawsLikeMe does not have a facility to house returned pets, however will make every effort to assist in rehoming online.

It depends because there are two types of pet listings on PawsLikeMe.com
The first type is a pet posted by a shelter or rescue group via the Rescuegroups.org website, or via the PLM shelter administration panel. These pets represent the majority of current adoptable pet listings, and are located in shelters or rescue groups in the US or Canada.
PawsLikeMe does not interfere with a shelter’s existing adoption process. If the pet is listed under an organization, that organization is setting the adoption fee. PawsLikeMe only helps connect the adopter to the organization.
The second type is a rehomed pet posted by an owner or guardian using our online rehoming program. For these pets, adopters are able to submit a short application or questions directly to the guardian. They can then communicate using a fully guided online adoption center. Many tools are available for adoption processing, including setup of an in-person meeting and adoption fee secure online payment.
