Why are Sanctuary animals available for adoption?
Most of the Sanctuary's animals are available for adoption because the more animals we adopt out, the more endangered animals we can take in.
What are the benefits of adopting?
Every animal adopted from Sanctuary One comes with a lifetime promise. If something happens and you can no longer care for the animal you adopt, he or she is always welcome back at the Sanctuary.
Each animal available for adoption has been evaluated by a veterinarian and is current on vaccinations. They’ve also undergone a basic behavioral assessment and have had their diets evaluated and specialized as needed. All house pets have been spayed or neutered, and all male farm animals except chickens and waterfowl have been neutered.
In addition, our staff provides free telephone/email counseling for all adopters. If you have any questions or concerns about your adopted animal, contact us and we'll do our very best to help you.
Last but not least, adopting an animal feels great! When you adopt instead of buying, you are helping to reduce the number of homeless animals in our community.
How does the adoption process work?
We take great care to ensure every animal adopted goes to a loving home where they will be well cared for. Each potential adopter is asked to complete an adoption application and agree to a home visit to ensure they are committed to lifetime care for the animals they adopt.
Please note: the Sanctuary reserves the right to decline any adoption that we feel will not be in the animal's best interest. We have the same kind of adoption standards that most local animal shelters and
humane societies have, including not adopting out an animal if he or she will be used for breeding, meat, milking, or re-sale.

How do I apply?
Adoption applications are available at the Sanctuary. You can also download an application and email it to info@SanctuaryOne.org, deliver it to us in person (by appointment only), or post mail it to Sanctuary One, 13195 Upper Applegate Road, Jacksonville, OR 97530.
What happens after I apply?
After your application is reviewed you will be interviewed by our Animal Care Manager, Sansa Collins. She will guide you through the rest of the adoption process.
How do I get my new companion?
Preferably all adopters will be able to transport animals to their new home. If that isn’t possible Sanctuary One will make every effort to assist you.
