Who We Are

Border Animal Rescue is a Non-Profit Organization . We are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of homeless and unwanted dogs and cats into loving, responsible and patient homes. Our adoptable animals live in foster homes, where they recieve personal care, attention, and love.

Adopting a Friend

You've made the right choice in choosing the adoption option, now you're on your way to adopting a new best friend!

All of our adult dogs and cats are spayed or neutered prior to going to their new home. Kittens and puppies under the sterilization age are adopted on a sterilization agreement. Upon the same day as sterilization, the vaccinations will be given.

There is an adoption donation of $70.00 for dogs and $50.00 for cats to be paid upon approval. This helps to defray the costs of veterinary bills and rescue efforts.

All prospective adopters are carefully screened as we strive for a "match made in heaven." We require adopters to fill out a short application, and provide us with references that we will check. A home visit may also be conducted.

Since not all animals are suitable for all potential adoptive homes, we do reserve the right to turn down or limit any potential adopters to certain animals as we deem necessary. We will help you choose a dog or cat that will be compatible with your family and lifestyle. We want you to be happy with your choice and your new friend to be happy with you.

Please remember this is a lifelong commitment; however, if for some reason the match does not work out (at any point), we must be notified and will help you make arrangements to return or place the pet. We will assist with medical problems reported to us within 10 days of adoption.


We are always in need of the basics, such as: towels, dog houses, toys, quality food for fosters, leashes, collars, kitty beds, vitamins, biscuits and treats, cat litter, travel kennels, and wire crates. And, of course, monetary donations are quickly put to good use!
