The adoption process at CVHS is warm, positive, and informative. Our goal is to help you find a pet whose personality is a good match for your lifestyle. As part of the process, we ask you to complete an Adopter Information Form as well as a Meet Your Match survey.

Meet Your Match (MYM)
You could be gazing at the animal of your dreams, but you just can’t tell what she’s thinking behind that furry face. What if you knew a little something about her personality and habits before you moved in together? The Meet Your Match program is the only method in existence today that evaluates an animal’s behavior and interests and matches them to an adopter’s preferences so that you take home a pet you can really click with. When you come to the shelter, we’ll invite you to fill out a quick survey about your preferences so we can match you with the right personality, or, er, canine-ality and feline-ality.
