Thank you for considering adopting your new family member from FLUFF Animal Rescue. The first step in the process is your online questionnaire.

One of our volunteer coordinators will begin to follow up by reviewing information which you provided on your application. We ask for a little patience during this process, as often times our Volunteer Adoption Counselors/Coordinators are managing many applications per pet.

Our goal is to ensure long-term success and happiness

for ALL those involved in the process of adopting.


FLUFF Animal Rescue in Seminole, Florida exists to help secure loving, nurturing and forever families for all of our furry friends.  Please remember, we are here to assist you in finding the right companion and friend, and make our final adoption decisions based upon what is best for all parties in consideration.

A signed final


will be required prior to finalizing adoption.

(Occasionally, a home visit or video of the yard/home is necessary to determine placement.) 


Thank you for considering ADOPTION! 


FLUFF welcomes all adopters with our "Adopters Welcome" policy. In the past, adopting a pet was a very frustrating process. Rescues (including FLUFF) may have asked you for a proof of a fenced yard and more. These policies were designed to prevent adoptions judged as “likely to fail.” They were also supposed to decrease the likelihood of adopted pets being returned to our rescue. However,  we realized the policies created barriers that often kept good potential adopters from adopting, and we missed out on matching many pets into amazing homes!

Rather than using traditional adoption policies, FLUFF is transitioning to the Humane Society of the United States’ "Adopters Welcome" approach. This new approach welcomes every potential adopter, encourages a life-long support network, and ensures ultimate success for all involved. "Adopters Welcome" enables us to save more lives!

Instead of trying to rule out potential adopters by using past history as a guide, "Adopters Welcome" focuses on finding perfect pet homes through meaningful discussions with potential adopters. Adoption counselors speak with potential adopters while learning about their home, lifestyle and pet needs. Additionally, this often leads to adoption counselors serving as a resource throughout the life of the adopted pet.

And, while FLUFF wants every pet and adopter to be a perfect match, we do not view returns as failures. Instead, we use the information to learn more about the pet so we can better match them with future adopters.

With so many animals needing homes, using an approach that tries to locate and accept more adopters makes sense.  By welcoming adopters and removing roadblocks,

FLUFF Animal Rescue is proud to be a rescue that welcomes everyone!

We ask for a little patience during this transition, as our volunteer Adoption Counselors and coordinators are learning a new process, and our applications are transitioning into questionnaires where adopters will always feel welcome!

We will be in touch soon! 

**Adoption Fee collected prior to placement in home

Our Adoption fees include spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip/registration and all preventatives up to date of adoption.

How adoption fees are set:

***We use a variable fee schedule to assign adoption fees.***

This fee schedule takes into account the animal’s age, breed, and size.

Some types of dogs and cats are less common and have a higher demand, so their fee might be higher. Other types of dogs and cats are more common, are older, or have special needs.

A variable fee structure that assigns higher fees to certain high-demand animals ensures we have the funds to provide for other animals that have special needs and/or a more difficult time finding a new home.

Please note that we are not physically able to follow up with every applicant, and if your application does not match one of our available pets, we may not reach back out.

Your new best friend is worth the wait! 🐶

Thank you again for your interest in adopting through FLUFF Animal Rescue!

By considering adoption, you are saving lives!

with much heart,

Kimmy Chandler, Founder
