About Us

Adopting A Friend

To adopt from us you will need to fill out one of our adoption applications.  This is a short questionnaire that asks about your current and past pets, your veterinarian, your home environment, and other important issues we consider before sending a pet home. If you would like an application, feel free to email us at forpawsrescue@woofave.com or fill out the form below.  Please specify in your message if you would like the dog or cat application.

Our adoption fee is $160.

Our adoptions include:

  • Spay or Neuter
  • Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, and Bordatella vaccinations
  • Microchip with a subscription for the life of your pet
  • A free visit with one of our participating veterinarians (This must be used within the first week of adoption.)
  • A leash, collar, and tag
  • A small bag of food

Puppies and kittens that are too young to be spayed or neutered before adoption will require an additional $100 deposit.  Once they are old enough, their surgery will be done by our preferred veterinarian at our cost.  After the procedure, the $100 deposit will be refunded.

We try our best to match animals to their ideal homes but in the event that an adopted pet is not a good fit for your household, they are to be returned to For Paws Rescue.

Who We Are

For Paws Rescue is a non-profit rescue organization that has served Lee County and the surrounding areas since 2004.  We re-home 300-450 pets each year.  Some of those are adopted directly from our rescue and some are housed by us while other rescues make room for them.

For Paws Rescue is a donation based organization.  We do not receive any state or federal funding.  We have an annual fundraiser the first weekend of May as well as smaller events throughout the year. We mainly rely on donations from private companies and individuals wanting to help our cause.
