DISCLOSURE:  The adoption of an animal through The Animal Protectorates | Operation Adopt is only finalized after review of an application and an approved home visit by a TAPS volunteer.   This online payment option is only offered as a convenience.  Payment of the adoption fee prior to an adoption being finalized does not constitute an adoption and does not transfer guardianship of an animal.  

As set forth in the adoption contract, adoption fees are nonrefundable.  

Check with your accountant as to what portion of the adoption fee may be deductible as a donation.
