Our Adoption Process


Once you've found the right pet for your family, fill out our adoption application.

Adoption Qualifications

Adoption application must be completed with veterinary reference. Vet reference must have valid information to establish a history of responsible pet ownership. We must be able to verify that previous or current pets are/were spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, and current on heart worm prevention. Without this vital information, we are unable to approve adoptions. Our mission to adopt our rescues is not based on "good faith". Our ability to approve applications is based off of an established history or responsible pet parenting. We have witnessed far too many animals suffer to allow "good faith" to forecast their future.


  • Must be 21 Years of Age, or older
  • Have Valid driver's license and/or other photo ID
  • Must be open to home inspection
  • All pets must reside inside your home as part of your family


Adoption application must be completed in their entirety


Deceptive information is not tolerated, nor excused.


    We are unable to approve applicants:


  •     If there is an un-spayed or un-neutered pet in the home, unless there is a valid, documented health reason.
  •     The pet will be outdoors only.
  •     The pet is intended as a gift


 In addition to the above, we reserve the right to decline any applicant for any reason.


We have rescued these babies once. We have rescued them for a better life. Rescuing an animal to place in a less than ideal home is futile. We sincerely hope applicants will appreciate and honor our goals to protect the rescued pets current in our care. WE are here for them. We hope you are too.

About Us

Sunny Meadows is a non profit no-kill animal rescue. We are the largest no kill rescue facility in the mid-south. Sunny Meadows has been rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing thousands of homeless pets for the past 11 years. We started this rescue with the kindness and passion of a very sweet women.



Our Purpose:

In a world of staggering, heart breaking number of pets euthanized each year; we offer safety from the cruel reality for as many pets as possible.


Reduce relinquishment of companion animals by promoting preventative medical care, promoting compatibility in the selection of a pet, to educate responsible pet ownership, to offer resources and advice on behavioral issues, and ultimately promoting the benefits of having a cherished, loving pet.



What We Do:

Our primary focus is finding safe, loving homes for unwanted, neglected and/or abused animals. Some are owner surrenders, some are strays, and some are rescued from very bad situations. Every pet we rescue gets our full care and any medical treatment needed. once healthy, they are ready for adoption. If a pet has any behavior issues, we work on those issues as well. all of our pets are full vetted and spayed before adoption.


We take particular care in placing our animals, pure and mixed breed alike. our screening process includes an application, reference checks and a visit to the potential owner’s home to ensure the home and family is compatible with the pet’s needs and our requirements. We ask adoptive owners to sign a detailed contract obliging them to give the animal a loving home.



Why We Do It

  • 4 million animals are euthanized each year in the united states.
  • That is 300,000 a month
  • Over 11,000 each day
  • Much love works tirelessly to decrease this statistic.


 We are ready to help you find your special furry friend
